100 Plants to Feed the Bees

The Xerces Society


The first simple step toward protecting our pollinators — bees — is to provide the flowers and plants they need using no pesticides. The Xerces Society offers a great resource of plants and flowers ideal for bees growth and production.

Each plant profile includes:

  • Which pollinators visit the plant
  • The quality of honey the nectar produces
  • When it blooms
  • How best to use it in the landscape
  • Planting tips
  • Spectacular photography

This field guide identifies the plants that honey bees and native bees — as well as butterflies, moths and hummingbirds — find most nutritious, including flowers, trees, shrubs, herbs and pasture plants. 

"The ever-helpful Xerces Society shows us how to bring back our threatened species, one gorgeous garden at a time. Everybody wins!"Dar Williams, singer, songwriter and environmental activist.
