Dandelions: A weed or a wildflower?

As I was driving to work today I caught a glimpse of a riot of sunny yellow on a grassy verge by the side of the road. Dandelions are one of the earliest sources of food for pollinating insects such as bees. Currently, at the Arboretum we have a traveling exhibit *Bee-Hold the Humble Pollinator*. Discover beautiful native bees you didn't know existed, and learn how to encourage bees in your pollinator gardens
