Plant for Pollinators (and Life)
If you missed the informative session on May 11 at the Lee Center Butterfly Garden, you are in luck!
The presenter gave us a Pollinator Gardening Summary that contains some highlights from the presentation and
information that you can use in your own home gardening.
The May 11 information session was intended to support national initiatives to help very imperiled pollinators.
We learned about groupings of mainly native plants that can provide three seasons of food for bees
and butterflies, and also help birds. Information included lists of plants;
their size, color, and bloom periods; and how to group perennials, shrubs, and trees to
create natural habitat.
