Flowering Containers

Three weeks ago we planted five containers with flowering annuals.  Many of our native plants are small and have not bloomed  in the habitat.  We wanted to provide flowers for the solitary bees and butterflies already in the area.  Near our habitat entrance we planted sweet alyssum, Mexican giant hyssop and lantana.  In containers near the bee house, salvia and rose moss were planted.  The flowers are in full bloom and attracting many native bees.
