Wildflowers Attract Pollinators to Your Gardens

By wildflowers
August 18, 2013

Do you want to attract bees, butterflies, and/or hummingbirds to your garden? The best way to lure pollinators into your garden is to plant things they love. Pollinators love wildflowers. These are a few of my favorites that are loved by pollinators and are easy to grow.

Thank you, Vic! Smiling and you are welcome!

I've found that the pollinators will favor wildflowers over most everything else I try to plant in the garden.
