Native blooms in gardens and fields make for a pollinator’s all-you-can-eat buffet! Whether you only have space for a small patio garden or have a pasture that can be overseeded with native wildflowers, adding flowering plants to your landscape can give Oklahoma’s pollinator community a boost.  

A sunny location, mix of perennial and annual native plants, and a plant selection catering to both adults and larvae are key elements for pollinator garden success. This recipe card from the Pollinator Partnership shares more ingredients and steps for creating a pollinator smorgasbord.
