Many of the prettiest insects feed on nectar, so they need flowering plants to survive. Bees, hoverflies, butterflies, and moths all need sources of pollen and nectar to thrive. As they fly from flower to flower, they also pollinate them, allowing plants to set seed or bear fruit.

This being said, setting up a garden with nectar-rich plants benefits both them and you. What’s more beautiful than to enjoy the fluttering and flitting of lovely butterflies?

The best way to create a pollinator-friendly garden is to choose at least three nectar-rich plants that will bloom across as many seasons as possible. Single-petal flowers are easiest for hummingbirds, bees, and other pollinators to reach. Double-petal flowers are usually showier but provide less nectar and pollen.

So, without further ado, let’s see some of the best nectar-rich plants to keep bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators coming to your garden!
