Bees are recognized as important, expert pollinators. Their numbers are threatened, due, in large part, to a decrease in habitat. YOU can help increase their population by creating a garden full of nectar-nourishing perennial plants and shrubs.
Which one of these is not a good choice for a pollinator garden?
- Pussy willow
- Joe-pye weed
- Lanceleaf coreopsis
- Ornamental grasses
- Purple coneflower
- Autumn joy sedum
ANSWER: Ornamental grasses. Since grasses are pollinated by wind, bees have little use for them.
