Pollinator Garden Plant List
In general, any blooming plant provides forage. Plants in the aster (sunflower) family are great for many species of pollinators. It is better if you plant species that bloom in spring, early summer, and fall to supplement season-long forage needs for pollinators, especially if you have a lot blooming in your area in the summer after monsoon rains.
