Backyard Plants

These spectacular flowers add vibrance to Eco Ed's garden

A garden’s essence comes from the flowers planted in it. Blooming flowers can bost vibrant colors; a collage of orange, yellow, and red can remind someone of a summer sunset. But flowers can add more than just color. Certain plants attract native butterflies and bumble bees that help pollinate your garden. Other plants, like blueberries, can be harvested for the edible fruits that add a delicious splash to your kitchen. Eco Ed is here to help teach you how to select local plant species to add beauty, value, and taste to your garden. Check out what plants Eco Ed has already written about. (Link) – make big
