List of a few plants I grow that attract wildlife.

Privet hedge, birds nest and eat berries in fall/winter

Roses wildlife eats rose hips

Japanese yew, birds eat berries

Raspberries and blackberries provide fruit for all to eat

Crabapple tree fruit for animals

Red Petunias and salvia favorite of hummingbirds

Wild flowers for bees and butterflies

Milkweed for monarch butterflies

Catnip and wheat grass for my pet cats lol

That's just some things I grow for wildlife

Hurray! You're gonna have lots of wildlife company in the future, I bet!
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White
