100 Plants to Feed the Bees
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.
