Please bear with another Nudge towards the Native, another Periodical Plea for the Pollinators.
Plant away, but make use of the resources that are out there. Our local extension services and arboreta are fine places to start. If you're updating a perennial garden, please consider planting something for the bees and the butterflies. Our local library is loaded with books - I can vouch for this - full of new ideas to encourage the local pollinators.
You can plant something that is not only beautiful, but durable and useful as well.
