Wildflowers add so much beauty to our yards and gardens while providing food to our local wildlife, primarily butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
Before planting wildflowers, get to know your site and select species best suited to the amount of sunlight, moisture and soil type. Take note of the height of the wildflowers and design accordingly, with the lowest species to the front and the tallest to the middle or back. Remember to include larval host plants, the food plants for caterpillars. Learn more about attracting pollinators and our pollinator garden packs.
When designing your wildflower space consider planting species in minimum groupings of three. Groups of flowers create a better show of blooms, aid in cross-pollination for seed production, and create nectar “targets” and are more frequently visited by pollinators.
