Bring on the butterflies pot 683x1024

Summertime is the perfect time to invite fluttering friends to our yards. Many favorite pollinator plants are blooming in their full glory! You can’t go wrong combining these full sun, heat-tolerant, pollinator-attracting beauties.  

  1. Penta Tall Red Ruby is an excellent choice for a thriller plant growing to 36″ high and producing deep red, butterfly-attracting blooms consistently all season.
  2. Salvia Rockin’ Blue Suede Shoes This Proven Winner variety of salvia is deer resistant, long-blooming, and a favorite of butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
  3.  Coreopsis Gold & Bronze fills in with a sunny pop of yellow color. It is easy to grow and provides long-lasting cut flowers all summer.
  4. Lantana Anne Marie is a perfect filler spreading from 24″-36″ wide, easy to grow, heat tolerant, drought tolerant, prolific bloomer, and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
  5. Swamp Milkweed is easy to grow; both larval host and nectar source for the Monarch Butterfly!
