Support pollinators!

Do your part to help pollinators and grow more native perennials!

According to scientists’ estimates, global insect populations are down by 50-75% in the past 50 years. One way to take action is to plant perennials on a hyper-local level and support the insects, specifically pollinators, in your area. That can be a city lot, a farm, or a house in the suburbs.

We have the plants to build your pollinator support toolkit here in WNC, USDA zone 7. Redbud is a beautiful landscape tree, with excellent early season pollinator support. Witch hazel is a beautiful, medicinal plant with winter interest which supports pollinators after everything else is dormant and has stopped blooming. In the middle of the season, we love to have a variety of species like button bush, carolina sweet shrub, spice bush, dogwood, sourwood, and black gum. These species are beautiful, useful, and native!
