Wisconsin Native Individual
Plant Information

Join Little Sweet Flower Farm to help support and protect our pollinators and natural Wisconsin landscapes.

When selecting pollinator plants, here are some helpful hints to keep in mind:

  • Plant in groups to increase pollination efficiency.

  • Plant with bloom season in mind.  Pollinators need to have a food source from spring to fall.

  • Have a diverse selection of flowers.  Flowers with different colors, textures, fragrances, heights, and different bloom schedules, will attract different varieties of pollinators and provide a food source all season long.

  • Group your plantings so pollinators can safely move and are protected from predators.

  • Provide host plants for larval development.
