POLLINATOR PLANTS 

Pollinators - or more specifically, bees and butterflies - are attracted to certain plants. Without these very important insects we would not have many of our favorite fruits and vegetables. Because of heavy pesticide use and other, environmental influences, we are seeing fewer and fewer of them.  Planting a pollinator garden is one way to attract these helpful creatures, and to ensure that they are around for a long time. Below is a list of plants you can plant in your yard to attract them (and humming birds too).

ANNUALS AS POLLINATORS

Alyssum

Asters

Blanket Flower

Fennel

Geraniums

Lobelia

Milkweed

Oregano (the plant must flower in order to be a pollinator)

Penstemon (this plant is not a perennial in this region)

Salvia

Sunflowers

 

PERENNIALS AS POLLINATORS 

Asclepias

Bee Balm (Monarda)

Buddleia (Butterfly Bush)

Cardinal Flower

Coreopsis

Echinacea

Kniphofia

Lavender
