Supporting Pollinators and the Planet

Planting native plants is one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to support pollinators. By providing an abundance of resources, all pollinators can thrive, which increases the overall vitality of the ecosystem and all its inhabitants – plants, animals, and humans alike.

The Power of Native Plants

Not all plants are created equal when it comes to supporting pollinator health. Here's the breakdown of the different types:
Native Plants

These are plants that occur naturally in their particular ecosystem and have evolved in its specific conditions. In the US, these are plants that were here pre-European contact.

Our recent research revealed a statistically significant correlation between healthy bees and areas with larger native plant populations. Native plants have ample amounts of pollen and nectar, and also provide essential micronutrients.

Non-Native Plants

In the US, we consider plants to be non-native if they arrived after European colonization. A common definition for a non-native plant is one that was introduced to a specific region by direct or indirect human activity.

Most of these plants are non-invasive; their original environment was similar to their adopted one. They fit in symbiotically with their new ecosystems.

Invasive Plants

Invasive plants are non-native plants that cause economic or environmental harm, or threaten human health. These plants compete directly with native species for resources.

Invasive species have contributed to the decline of 42% of U.S. endangered and threatened species. They degrade wildlife habitat and water quality, increase soil erosion, and outcompete other plants in the ecosystem.

Cultivars

The term "cultivar" refers to plants that are the result of purposeful genetic crossbreeding. They are created with traits in mind, such as size or disease resistance.

These plants tend to be sterile and therefore produce little to no pollen and nectar. Some characteristics – such as double layers of petals – make it difficult or impossible for pollinators to access any pollen or nectar the plant may have.
