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
Oregano (the plant must flower in order to be a pollinator)
Penstemon (this plant is not a perennial in this region)
PERENNIALS AS POLLINATORS
Bee Balm (Monarda)
Buddleia (Butterfly Bush)
Sedum (Blooms in the fall)
