It’s fall and time to plant…the monarchs and other butterflies are heading to your garden ….will the hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies have something to eat and “hang out” providing entertainment or not?
Here are some things you can add to your garden to feed them…Blue mistflower- Conoclinium coelestinum – flowers summer through early winter feeding all kinds of butterflies. Indian mallow – Abutilon palmeri- bright orange/gold flowers from early spring through early winter feeding all kinds of interesting bees. Seaside daisy- Erigeron glaucus- for meadow gardens and perennial border- long blooming period. Feeds bees and butterflies. Salvia lemmonii- excellent hummingbird feeder and flowers all year too. Monardella odoratissima- mountain mint- very strong minty fragrance-flowers early spring into early winter feeding bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies. Chocolate daisies- Berlanderia lyrata- native to the southwest and northern Mexico- strong chocolate fragrance and blooms from late winter through fall.
Also, turn in your old nursery pots for credit against purchase – great way to get rid of your trashy old pots and bring home new plants for the garden!!!
