Pollinating Plants To Grow

Posted by Jennifer Smith on 8th May 2019

Spring is the best season to begin growing pollinating plants in the garden; and when we grow to feed bees, we are really helping ourselves. Bees, among other pollinating insects, help grow up to 1/3 of the world's plants and give us mature fruits and vegetables.

There are many perennial flowers and shrubs that can grow to help honey bees thrive including:

  • Aster
  • Sunflowers
  • Bee balm
  • Black-eyed Susans
  • Butterfly bushes
  • Eastern Redbuds
  • and Blueberry bushes
  • Flowering Cherry
  • American Holly
  • Crabapples
  • Black gum
  • Honeysuckle
  • Climbing rose
  • Buckeye
  • Golden raintree
  • Lavender
  • Thyme
  • Elderberry
  • Clover

Some plants, including Black-eyed Susan an Aster, are deer-resistant and should keep deer away from growing sites. Help to save the bees this spring by planting these types of flowers and shrubbery.
