“We were very fortunate (and lucky!) to have a Monarch butterfly visit our milkweed patch. We plant them for the beautiful native butterflies and other pollinators in our garden. This morning in the garden, we saw that the eggs have hatched into larvae. Now, we are hoping to see the larvae stages through to chrysalis and butterfly.”

Corylopsis, Winter Hazel and Ribes sanguineum, Flowering Currant, are beautiful spring bloomers for early pollinators.
When planting for pollinators, think about plants that will be in bloom late winter, early spring, summer, and fall. Native plants and their relatives are a good place to start. Pollinators survive best in gardens that are cared for with organic and sustainable methods. For more information on pollinators, click on this link to the Xerces Society.
