Natural Nectar Native Pre-Planned Garden is a long-blooming native perennial garden that will be alive with butterflies, native bees, and hummingbirds from mid-summer through fall. Purple Beauty Creeping Phlox attracts bees and butterflies with mid-to-late spring nectar. Dainty peach-toned blooms of Crème Caramel Coreopsis arrive early summer and last until early fall when the flowers produce seeds that feed a variety of songbirds. The pollinator garden comes into its full glory in mid-summer with the deep pink spires of Blazing Star, the pink blooms of Bright Eyes Phlox and Echinacea purpurea purple flowers. Providing shelter and nesting material for birds, Blackhawks foliage emerges dark green, shifting to a deep purple that darkens as summer turns to fall, culminating in purple blooms with tiny white seeds. The bright yellow flowers of Wild Helenium autumnale and the blue flowers of Great Blue Lobelia will round out the summer and into fall. Purple Aster adds an exclamation point to the garden as a late-season pollinator magnet that lasts through fall.
The Natural Nectar Native Pre-Planned Garden is a low-maintenance garden, perfectly suited for areas with full sun (6-12 hours), though the Bright Eyes Phlox, Dwarf Blazing Star can thrive in full sun to partial shade. You can keep this garden neat-looking or let it go wild over time. For blooms in early spring, pair this native garden with fall-planted bulbs (the earliest food source for pollinators).
