Bee Friendly Perennial Flowers

Feed The Bees With Nectar-Filled Flowers

Bee-friendly gardens provide plenty of nectar throughout the entire gardening season, from spring to late fall. Colors look completely different through the eyes of a bee - they prefer white, yellow, and blue flowers, since these colors help them make a beeline to good sources of nectar. Bees seek nectar with a high concentration of sugar, and these flowers fit the bill perfectly. Plus, our plants are neonicotinoid-free, so your garden will be a safe habitat for these buzzing pollinators. If you grow vegetables, be sure to include bee-friendly plants in your garden to ensure good pollination and a bountiful harvest.

    Blunt Mountain Mint is a distinctive native wildflower that simply buzzes with life. Bees, butterflies, and other pollinators cover the small, white, nectar-rich flowers from mid to late summer. Blooms form in button-like clusters, surrounded by silver bracts that give plants a frosted appearance. Foliage smells strongly of spearmint, with the added benefit of being unpalatable to deer and rabbits. This resilient perennial can tolerate heat and humidity and naturalizes easily.
