This is one of our favorite books for beginners interested in learning about incorporating native plants in their home gardens and their vital role in helping pollinators.
From the author, Flora Caputo:
Want to help the bee population but don't know where to start? Interested in native flowers but not sure which one will work in your garden? Feeling overwhelmed as you research native plants for your specific area? I created this Midwest native plant guide to help you easily discover a native plant to suit your garden needs. Adding just one native plant can make a positive impact on your local bee and butterfly population. Unlike other native plant books, I organized these native plants by their height and sun needs. This makes the cumbersome task of garden planning much easier. My hand-painted illustrations and maps accompany each entry, making this a unique and lovely addition to your garden book collection.
