Play pollinators matchmaker!

Posted

In the symbiotic dance of plants & pollinators, the plants lead. Flowers coyly employ clever come-hither tricks to entice their chosen intermediaries -- bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds and more - to consummate their reproductive strategies.

Plant lovers are hip to the birds and the bees. Gardeners are all abuzz about bee health and pollinator-friendly perennials. Play matchmaker: Provide the flowers that pollinators love, like those below. If you plant them, they will come!

Achillea

Agastache

Asclepias tuberosa

Aster

Echinacea (also a favorite food for finches!)

Eupatorium

Kniphofia

Leucanthemum

Liatris

Lobelia

Monarda

Phlox paniculata

Salvia (hummingbirds love it, too!)

Scabiosa

Stokesia 

Sedum

For the pollinator on the flower, it's just lunch. But for the flower that invited the pollinator, it's serious business. Future generations are at stake.
