Coneflower

Bees and Butterflies abound. Your garden will be humming, dancing and bursting with color all season. This pollinator powerhouse garden was designed based on the research of Heather Holm and Robert Gegear. More than just pollen and nectar the plants in this garden provide food sources for the larval stages of dozens of species of Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths). When left standing over the winter this garden will provide a place to overwinter for all our pollinator friends.

How To Use Our Garden Design Guidelines:

Each one of our Native Garden Design Guidelines is designed for 100 square foot area. Feel free to multiply the number of plants as many times as needed to fill your space. The suggested placement and number of plants for each area appear as circles on the design. While the color and structure of each plant appear as a silhouette on the side view of the garden. These gardens can be combined as well to help achieve your garden goals. For example; the pollinator powerhouse garden and the hummingbird garden can be combined to create a display of bright blooms and equally colorful visitors.
