FEED YOUR POLINATORS!!! Grow a Tulip Tree.
Birds and insects that carry pollen from plant to plant are called pollinators. They ensure flowers bloom and some of our favorite foods make it to the table. Pollinators help most fruits, vegetables and flowers grow healthy and vibrant!
As modern landscapes change, however, pollinators fight to survive, and they need our help. Gardening for pollinators is easy. You’re probably envisioning colorful flowers bursting with blooms, but did you know trees are just as important to pollinators?
The large, tulip-like flowers produced by the yellow poplar give this tree its name. Not actually a poplar, this tree is a member of the magnolia family. Its greenish-yellow blooms and sweet nectar attract pollinators to the yellow poplar. These trees need a lot of space, so plan for it to keep growing.
