Plants for Pollinators

The link below is to the native plants for pollinators and beneficial insects for AZ, NM and CO Plateaus.

These plants are attractive to a diversity of pollinators, providing pollen and nectar for bees, butterflies, wasps, flies, and moths. Some plants provide additional resources such as caterpillar host plants or nesting sites and nesting materials for above ground nesting bees. Many support specialist bees that require pollen from specific plants to survive and supplement beneficial insects that can help control pests of ornamental and crop plants. These plants are native to this region. 

Check to determine if a species is native in your area and can be used to create or enhance pollinator habitat across rural and urban landscapes

When purchasing plants, let your local garden center or nursery know you want plant material free of pesticides that may harm pollinators.
