Plants for Bees

Why would birders want to plant foliage that attracts bees? The little pollinators contribute to vegetation that provides food and nesting material for birds.

If you'd like to make your patio or yard more attractive to winged creatures, peek at this Daily Green article. You can find more details about local native plants by doing a keyword search for "native plant society" plus the name of your state.

This is a great article, but I would definitely focus on planting species known to attract NATIVE bees, not European Honeybees.

There are many perennials that can add to the beauty of any place in a few months, if due care and attention is paid while choosing and growing them.
