Plants for beauty and pollinators

By Benjamin Vogt

Great Native Plant: Baptisia – Bring beneficial bee pollinators with this drought-tolerant perennial that looks like a shrub and acts like a flower.

Moving into fall, Blue Sage (Salvia azurea, zones 4 to 9) fuels hummingbirds on their migration south and draws beneficial bees in with its tubular blooms. This true blue flower dramatizes the native prairie garden oh so subtly. Smooth Aster (Symphyotrichum laeve)
Supports over 30 bee species and over 70 insect species.
