Planted Bee & Butterfly Garden Collection


11/06/2019 – After having relocated the pannicle hydrangeas that did not do well in the narrow driveway bed as well two daylilies, Mary planted a bulb collection to attract bees and butterflies. The collection was bought from Michigan Bulb and the link to the collection is here.

The collection contains:

  • 5 Leucojum Aestivum, ‘Summer Snowflake’. upper left photo
