Attracts Birds and Butterflies

Designing wildlife friendly gardens or landscape is not only fun, but can be educational. The plants listed here attract birds for berries, protection and habitat. In addition, hummingbirds and butterflies are attracted to many of these plants for nectar. Adding water to the garden or landscape will also help to bring birds to the area. Understanding the nature of the plants listed here will help to bring wildlife to the landscape throughout the year. For example, Ceanothus and Ribes bloom in the late winter/early spring, Achilleas and Salvias bloom in the late spring/early summer, Sambucus bloom in the spring and fruit in the summer, Zauschneria bloom late summer/fall. Choosing a plant palette such as this will bring wildlife to the landscape almost all year.
