Book tells which type of native bees may be enticed to your garden per plant type and what areas certain plant grow. A good reference book to have for native plants that attract varied pollinators as hummingbirds, native bees, honey bees, butterflies and moths. As someone keen on helping pollinators with native plants I joined the Edmonton Native Plant Group. I learned first hand how to plant native to our area plants and have had a tremendous increase in native pollinators in our tiny native to our area plant garden.
