Grow these perennial flowers to attract pollinators to your home garden! Remember, the most important step is to provide nectar-rich sources of food throughout the growing season. Make sure you include food sources for larvae if you’re attracting butterflies (name listed with a * below)
Spring Perennials for Pollinators
Growing plants that bloom early in spring is essential for bees awakening from hibernation when temperatures begin to warm.
Summer Perennials for Pollinators
If you have space, plant perennials in groups to help bees find your flowers – studies show that honeybees need a solid four foot block of the same plant to be able to recognize it when flying by.
Fall Perennials for Pollinators
As bees and butterflies get ready to hibernate or migrate, nectar flow in late fall is vital for storing energy.
Enjoy the butterflies and bees in your garden!
