15 New Perennials For Bees, Butterflies, And Other Pollinators

Perennials produce colorful flowers and foliage year after year, providing habitat and food for bees, butterflies, birds, moths, and other pollinators. Urbanization and lack of biodiversity have contributed to a shortage of nectar and pollen sources, putting pollinator health at risk. With more gardeners looking to grow plants that promote pollinator health, perennials offer plenty of possibilities for a pollinator-friendly landscape.

For greenhouse growers, these 15 new perennials available for retail in 2016 and 2017 are hardy, with compact habits and strong branching for easier shipping, plus dozens of colorful blooms that will appeal to both pollinators and customers.
