Let us remember our little friends when planting our gardens! There’s a whole, fascinating world of buzzing, flying, hopping, crawling bugs, right in front of our eyes, but mostly overlooked. Beneficial insects pollinate our fruits and vegetables and help us with pest control. Here is a collection of plants that serve the dual purpose of providing food & shelter for beneficials, while adding beauty to our homes and neighborhoods. Many are hardy natives, and all are well-adapted to Oklahoma weather.
