Saving the bees is all the buzz, but it's important to know what you are planting with "wildflower
mixes". These seed mixes, though beautiful, often contain hidden invaders that can cause problems in local habitats since they are chosen to thrive with little to no care. Make sure before spreading these wildflower seeds, that you have checked the plant list!!
Check out our Living in Nature Series Guide: Attracting Native Pollinators for a list of beautiful native plants that flower throughout the growing season, attracting bees and butterflies without introducing invasive plants. Plantwise also has a great "grow me instead" section.
