Native wildlfowers... so beneficial and so beautiful!

One of my goals is to inspire people to plant native wildflowers around their homes! Native wildflowers will attcact butterflies for you to watch! By providing a native plants, you are helping bring even more beauty to your yards, and gardens! Even a native wildflower in a pot on an apartment balcony will provide a much needed sip of nectar for butterflies, hummingbirds, moths and bees!

Plant Your Own Little Nature Preserve

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Everyone can help our declining native species by planting a "little nature preserve" on their property, yard or even a small patio by incorporating native wildflowers and grasses that naturally grown in their region. Places like are transforming disturbed areas back to a more natural habitat on a larger scale and that is very important. Still, we all can help by planting native plants around yards, gardens and patios. Asters are a great plant as the native varieties are hardy and fill areas that are disturbed with non-natives. Even little plots offer nectaring breaks for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and moths.

Plant some native wildflowers in your yard and see what comes to get a free meal!

I'm definitely on board gradually converting my lawn and woodland to native wildflowers. :)
