Native Trees and Shrubs for Pollinators

June 9 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am EDT

When gardeners think of planting for pollinators, they often picture beds of colorful flowering perennials, but trees and shrubs can also provide excellent support for these insects. In anticipation of National Pollinator Week, join Extension Master Gardener Elaine Mills to learn about our native pollinators, their needs and preferences, and which plant species will offer the best sources of nourishment for their full life cycles. She introduces over 30 understory trees and shrubs native to the Mid-Atlantic and the Southeast, describes their characteristics, growth requirements, and landscape uses to add beauty to your garden.
