Iowa Native Plants

Golden Alexanders (pictured) is native to Iowa.

Narrowleaf Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum tenuifolium) is one of many hardy Iowa native pollinators. It’s drought-tolerant and can do well in full sun or partial shade.

Golden Alexanders (Zizia aurea) are also good choices because, although they do require a moderate amount of water, they can handle full sun and partial sun.

Blue False Indigo (pictured) is native to Kansas.

If you want to plant some Kansas native pollinators, consider Blue False Indigo. Blue False Indigo is a Spring-blooming plant that can handle relatively dry to rmoist soil conditions, as well as full or partial sunlight.

Antelope-Horns Milkweed (Asclepias asperula) is another form of milkweed that pollinators love. It can adapt to various soils and prefers full sun exposure.

Columbine (pictured) is native to Kentucky.

Among the best Kentucky native pollinators, White Wild Indigo (Baptisia alba) is a long-lasting perennial that thrives in full sunlight and is highly drought-tolerant.

Lanceleaf Tickseed (Coreopsis lanceolata) is also a good pick, especially for those who are planting wildflower gardens. It requires dry-to-moderately moist soil and does best in full sunlight.

Minnesota Native Plants

gaillardia

Gaillardia (pictured) is native to Minnesota.

Narrow-Leaf Coneflower (Echinacea angustifolia) is a lovely option among Minnesota native pollinators. It responds well to full sunlight and doesn’t require much moisture. It’s also more drought-tolerant than other coneflower varieties, such as white and purple coneflower.

Closed Bottle Gentian (Gentiana andrewsii) is another good, but slightly less hardy, choice. It requires partial shade to thrive, as well as moist (yet well-drained) soil.

Mississippi Native Plants

joe-pye-weed

Joe-Pye Weed (pictured) is native to Mississippi.

There are plenty of Mississippi native pollinators that will enhance your garden and support the local pollinator population. One example is Hardy Hibiscus (Hibiscus moscheutos), which handles full sun well and average soil moisture levels.

Joe-Pye Weed (Eutrochium fistulosum) also handles full sunlight well and can tolerate moderate, well-drained soil moisture.

Blue Mistflower (pictured) is native to Missouri.

For those who want to find Missouri native pollinators, Wingstem (Verbesina alternifolia) is an excellent starting point. It can tolerate full sun and partial shade well and does best with naturally moist soils.

Missouri Ironweed (Vernonia missurica) also handles full sun and responds to moderate-to-wet soils. It can survive partial flooding, too.

As far as North Carolina native pollinators go, Blanket Flower (Gaillardia) is a popular perennial. It handles full sunlight very well and requires moderately moist, well-drained soil.

Downy Phlox (Phlox paniculata) is also a popular choice that responds best to full sun (or light shade) and moderate amounts of moisture.

North Dakota Native Plants

Prairie Smoke (pictured) is native to North Dakota.

Rocky Mountain Beeplant (Cleome serrulata) is one of the best options for North Dakota native pollinators, especially when added to butterfly gardens. It performs best in full sunlight or very light shade and dry-to-medium soil.

Showy Tick Trefoil (Desmodium canadense) also handles full sunlight and partial shade well, as well as dry-to-moist soil.

Ohio Native Plants

foxglove-beardtongue

Foxglove Beardtongue  (pictured) is native to Ohio.

Wild Lupine (Lupinus perennis) is a favorite among the many Ohio native pollinators. It requires well-drained soil to thrive, but it is still quite adaptable and can handle full and partial sunlight.

Another good choice is Foxglove Beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis), which loves full sunlight and dry-to-moderately-moist soil.

One of the most popular types of Oklahoma native pollinators is Purple Poppy Mallow (Callirhoe involucrata). This vibrant flower thrives in full sunlight and dry-to-medium soil, but it does require adequate drainage.

Indian Blanket (Gaillardia pulchella) is another brilliant flower that responds best to similar growing conditions.

Oregon Native Plants

nodding-pink-onion

Nodding Onion (pictured) is native to Oregon.

When it comes to Oregon native pollinators, Vine Maple (Acer circinatum) is a lovely choice. This tree does best in full or partial sunlight and moist soil. It doesn’t thrive in hot or dry conditions.

White Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is another good option for wildflower pollinator gardens. It loves full sun and does better in dry-moderately moist soil.

    Pennsylvania Native Plants

    Prairie Blazing Star (pictured) is native to Pennsylvania.

    Prairie Blazing Star (Liatris) is a stunning addition to any group of Pennsylvania native pollinators. It tolerates full sunlight best, as well as moderately moist, well-drained soil. It responds well to hot and cold temperatures.

    Pussy Willow (Salix discolor) is another good pick that responds best to similar growing conditions as Gayfeather.

    Rhode Island Native Plants

    pussytoes

    Pussytoes (pictured) is native to Rhode Island.

    If you want to include Rhode Island native pollinators in your garden, start with Common Boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum), which works well in cottage gardens and wildflower gardens. This flower thrives in full sunlight and partial shade and requires moist-to-wet soils.

    Common Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifoloius) is another, slightly more versatile choice. It also tolerates full sunlight but doesn’t require as much soil moisture.

    South Carolina Native Plants

    carolina-rose

    Carolina Rose (pictured) is native to South Carolina.

    For southern gardeners looking to add to their collection of South Carolina native pollinators, Wild Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata) is an excellent option. This easy-to-grow full-sun or partial-shade twining vine spruces up any garden and does best when planted in moist soil.

    Carolina Rose (Rosa carolina) is a good choice, too, that does best in full sun and dry-to-wet soil.

    South Dakota Native Plants

    Of the many South Dakota native pollinators, Meadow Blazing Star is a great addition to your garden. It thrives in full sunlight and can handle dry-to-moist soil, but it does require sufficient drainage.

    Chokecherry (Prunus virginiana) is another good choice that has similar growing condition needs (although, it can also handle partial shade).

    Tennessee Native Plants

    Rose Mallow Hibiscus (pictured) is native to Tennessee.

    Rough Goldenrod (Solidago rugosa) is a good pick for those who want full-sun/light shade-tolerant Tennessee native pollinators. It does best in moderately wet soil, too, as long as it’s well-drained.

    Highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) is another excellent choice that has similar requirements when it comes to growing conditions.

    Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) is a popular choice for Vermont native pollinators. This variety of milkweed responds well to full sunlight and medium-to-wet soil.

    Virginia Spiderwort (Tradescantia virginiana) is a good option, too, that requires partial shade and dry-to-moist well-drained soil.

    Virginia Native Plants

    Looking for Virginia native pollinators? Start with something like Seaside Goldenrod (Solidago sempervirens). This low-maintenance shrub thrives in full sunlight and can handle sandy dry-to-moist soil as long as it’s well-drained.

    American Basswood (Tilia americana) trees are good picks, too, that love partial shade and medium-moisture soil.

    Wyoming Native Plants

    indian-paintbrush

    Indian Paint Brush (pictured) is native to Wyoming.

    The list of Wyoming native pollinators is lengthy, but one of the best choices is Eastern Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla patens). This flower handles full sunlight well and can handle dry-to-medium soils with ease, as long as they’re well-drained.

    Mexican Hat Plant is another good pick that loves full sun and moderately moist soil (with good drainage).
