Native Plants That Attract Bees Butterflies & Insects

Butterfly Moth
I hesitate to create a page like this one, as the the vast majority of perennials we raise do just that; attract butterflies, bees and other native insects. Some are gathering nectar, others are collecting pollen, some do both. Regardless, it is important to keep in mind that plants native to your specific region play a important role in nourishing numerous insects that ultimately pollinate a wide range of:vegetables, flowers and tress. Basically that which sustains us!
