Purple prairie clover

The small flowers of purple prairie clover bloom in woodlands, glades and prairies. Although not as showy as other sun-loving flowers, they do attract lots of small, native bees. Native bees receive much less attention than larger, non-native honeybees, but they are valuable pollinators of many wildflowers. —Jim Rathert
