Pollinators like bees, moths, hummingbirds, butterflies, and various other insects that contribute to Maine’s plants completing their reproductive cycle. As pollinators bounce from plant to plant taking their nectar they collect and leave behind pollen. It’s with this pollen that plants can produce flowers, fruits, or nuts.
If you are looking for plants to support your local pollinators, there are various plants you can plant to support native pollinators.
Here are a few late summer plants that can help support native pollinators:
- Bottle Gentian
- Blue Lobelia
- Wild Bergamot
- Snap Dragon
