fragrant & colorful flowers : it's all about the birds and the bees

Colorful petals and fragrant smells are nature’s way of making sure that flowers continue to bloom, they continue to reproduce.

The colors and fragrance of the flowers attract insects, bees, butterflies so that the pollens are cross-pollinated to other plants and new seeds are created.

Subtle differences in shade and scent distinguish flower varieties and ensure that pollinators keep visiting. The colors and scents of the flowers change according to time when the pollinators are most likely to be active.

The brighter the bloom and the stronger the scent, the more attention the flower will receive from the birds and bees. The flowers in warmer temperatures tend to have more intense fragrances than flowers from cooler climates.

How to create a butterfly garden

You can create a butterfly garden as a part of your yard or inside a window box. If you plant flowers and plants that butterflies love to feed on and lay eggs on, you can attract butterflies throughout the growing season. The first step is to do research on the varieties of butterflies which are native to your area. Consider making a list of all the different kinds of native butterflies that you would like to attract and the specific flowers and plants they both feed on and lay eggs on. Host plants tend to attract Adult butterflies for a longer period to lay their eggs on.
