Florida Native Plants for Pollinators

See What's Blooming in My Garden...

Pollinator Garden Steps

1. Provide Native Larval Host Plants

Butterflies seek out plants such as  milkweed (Asclepias spp.),  passion vine (Passiflora spp.), and Cassia (Senna spp.) to lay their eggs on. There are many native species that act as larval hosts for Florida's butterflies.

2. Choose Flowering Plants for Each Season

Plant least three species for each season - Spring, Summer & Fall. Plus, provide some winter blooming vines, shrubs, trees, or groundcover.

3. Design It for Pollinators

Choose a variety of flower shapes & colors. Clump multiple plants of the same species together to make it easier for pollinators. Ideally, build up to 15-25 species for bee & butterfly diversity.
