What are pollinators?
“Pollinators” refers to a suite of flowering plant species that provide not only food sources but reproductive structures for a wide array of insect life. The insects are the true “pollinators,” but the term is used widely for flowering native and some non-native plants as well.
Pollinator species are often blended in seed mixes to ensure various plants with different colored flowers bloom at different times of the year, targeting when insects need them the most.
