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. The pollinator garden comes into its full glory in mid-summer with the deep pink spires of Dwarf Blazing Star, the red flowers of Jacob Cline Bee Balm, the pink blooms of Bright Eyes Phlox and PowWow® Wild Berry Coneflower’s berry-purple flowers. Nicky Phlox attracts butterflies with it's magento-purple flowers and sweet scent. The warm colors of Mardi Gras Helenium and Henry Eliers Black Eyed Susan 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 and Jacob Cline Bee Balm 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).
