Wet Site Pollinator Mix

Pollinator habitat is dwindling. Planting a pollinator meadow creates beneficial habitat for pollinators, and makes for a beautiful landscape. Native pollinator plants create a natural ecosystem where a variety of pollinators are able to forage and nest. In addition, native plants with strong, deep roots can improve water infiltration, store carbon, filter runoff from parking lots and roadways, and survive drought. Pollinator gardens are always bustling with movement and provide a learning environment as well. Throughout early spring, summer, and fall a pollinator meadow will be constantly changing. Grasses delicately move in the wind, vibrant colors shift from bloom to bloom, and a diverse assortment of native butterflies, bees, and birds flutter in and out of the landscape.  This makes for an exciting take on landscape design with low maintenance. Great for areas with moist or wet soils.
