Landscapes for Pollinators

Pollinators and why they are important:

  • Birds
  • Bees
  • Wasps
  • Bats
  • Butterflies

Pollinators carry pollen between plants to help fertilize them so they can produce fruit or seeds.  They are crucial to our food and resource system across the globe. Over 75% of flowering plants need help with pollination. Without pollinators like bees, butterflies, and birds these plants would not exist.

Plants to attract Pollinators

  • Coneflower
  • Catmint
  • Beebalm
  • Sedum
  • Sunflowers
  • Joe-pye weed
  • Coreopsis

making your yard “Pollinator friendly”
