One of our favorite wildflowers this time of year is Golden Banner.  It's also a favorite among bumblebees as you'll see in this video!

Golden Banner is part of the Pea Family (Fabaceae).  It is a good species for pollinators and hightly attractive to bumblebees.

It is also a Nitrogen Fixer.  Nitrogen fixing bacteria that reside in nodules on the root of the plant convert nitrogen from the air into a form (ammonia) that plants can use.
