The Center for Pollinator Research has created taxa-specific plant guides for gardeners that want to support pollinators. Plants were selected for a high degree of attraction in most temperate North American landscapes, using data from entomologist Charles Robertson (1887-1916). Each guide includes herbaceous perennials, shrubs, and deciduous trees. Planting a variety of flowering plants will support a diversity of pollinators.
