Planting a Paradise for Pollinators
You may be asking: what should I plant for pollinators and how?
Pollinator-friendly habitats support a diverse range of pollinators including bees, moths, birds, beetles, flies, bats, and certain species of wasps. Beneficial habitats are composed of a wide variety of plant species, combinations of early, mid, and late blooms, large clusters of flowers, and high percentages of native plants. A diverse selection of plants, with a variety of “colors, sizes, shapes, heights, and growth habits,” attract a diverse selection of pollinators. While generalists, such as common honey bees, forage from a wide variety of plants, other specialist pollinators rely on specific plants with unique colors and structures.
