Native Pollinator Pack

12-18 in.
Includes: 2 Red-osier Dogwood, 2 Choke Cherry, 2 American Plum, 2 Meadowsweet, 2 Pasture Rose

These plants have been selected for characteristics that have special attraction to our native pollinators: bees, butterflies, moths, and others. Their leaves provide larval food for caterpillars, and the nectar and pollen of the flowers provide nutrition for the winged adults.
