Perfect for Pollinators

Echinaceas are ‘perfect for pollinators’

The objective for the new ‘Hot’ border this year was to provide open single flowers attractive to pollinating insects and it is closely planted with Echinacea, Penstemon, Dahlias, Cosmos, Ammi majus, Verbena bonariensis and Liatris spicata. On warm sunny days the border is┬áliterally buzzing. Sadly, there are very few butterflies visiting the garden this year because of the rain and I worry about the decline of many once common species.
