If you are planting Perennials, try to group a dense amount of plants in close proximity to one another, all with different shapes, colors and bloom times. This helps to attract a variety of pollinators all season long. It is also important to try to grow plants that are native to your area. Several varieties that are especially attractive to pollinators are Penstemon, Foxglove, Peonies, Black Eyed Susans, Echinacea, Sunflowers, Bee Balm and more.
We’ve put together several Wildflower Mixtures to help pollinators. Each mixture is designed with a variety of annual and perennial Wildflowers that are all different colors, shapes and bloom all season long, to attract a wide variety of pollinators to your garden. Try our Honey Bee Wildflower Seed Mix, Hummingbird & Butterfly Seed Mix, or plant a Native Mixture for your area.
Planting for pollinators can help benefit their depleting population and add extra color to your landscaping. If every gardener decided to plant their own pollinator garden, we could really help make a difference for the disappearing population!
