What critters or pollinators do
these attract?

How can I justifying planting them ?
At our ranchiito we do NOT keep bees.
They and other critters grace us with their presence, and we provide for their need to the best of our abilities.

They can attract bees and butterflies as well as hummingbirds. They do like moist soil so I don't know if they would be the best thing to plant in your area, Lavanda.
I garden for the pollinators.
