Looking for tough and easy perennials that provide summer color as well as attract pollinators? Don't forget about the Phillipine or Formosa Lily and the Four O'Clocks both are tough and easy summer flowering heirlooms that attract hummingbird moths and make great additions to a moon or moth garden. The Butterfly Bushes flower all summer long and provide nectar to a variety of butterflies as well as bees and other garden beneficials and come in an array of colors and sizes. Royal Red Buddleja is shown at left with an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, it is an old favorite with a honey-like fragrance. The native Blazing Stars or Liatris are one of the top nectar plants in summer for our native pollinators and return year after year with little care if given a sunny position in the garden or a natural area. Tall Blazing Star is shown at left and is one of our favorite Louisiana natives.
