#nativeplants #pollinators #gardening Jacob's Ladder is a great native plant to support early season pollinators in the garden. This mounding wildflower has clusters of blue flowers and beautiful compound leaf foliage that looks good all season long. It grows best in light to moderate shade and is perfect for planting under deciduous trees.

#nativeplants #wildlifegarden Looking to increase biodiversity in your yard? Sweet Fern is a popular small shrub (2’-5’ high), indigenous to the East and Northeast US. Because it is colony forming, it’s best if it has some room to spread. This shrub hosts numerous moths, making it especially beneficial to birds and an excellent addition to wildlife gardens. Good in partial shade and sun it makes an excellent layering shrub. Host to these and other moth species: Apple sphinx, Pawpaw sphinx, Io moth, Fruit-tree Leafroller Moth, Sweetfern Underwing.

Nothing is quite as cheerful as bright bunches of sunny Rudbeckia. These popular natives are well known for their abundant flowering and extended bloom periods. Very easy to grow, they bloom at the height of summer and beyond in a profusion of yellow and orange flowers that attract bees and butterflies with abundant pollen and nectar.
