Pollen Free Flowers Won't Help Bees

Every year I plant lots of sunflowers for the honeybees as they are declining. Yesterday, I picked up my seeds but didn't notice that they were pollen free (didn't even know there were such flowers). These sunflowers will not help the honey bee or other pollinating insects. I just want to let people know to read the package carefully if you plant for the same reason. Happy Planting!

Have they been bred like this? How sad. Thanks for warning us.
