Online tool helps identify best native plants for pollinators


Virginians who want to plant beneficial plants for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds have a new resource at their fingertips. The online Virginia Native Plant Finder now lets users search for native plant species that benefit pollinators. The tool, which is managed by the Virginia Natural Heritage Program, is free and easy to use; searches can be completed on desktops, tablets or smartphones.

Native plants are those that grow where they evolved; they have traits that enable them to adapt to local conditions. The Virginia Native Plant Finder lets users create their own custom native plant lists by selecting from dropdown menus. Bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies -- including a special category for monarch butterflies -- are among the choices. Users also can search plants by common or scientific name to learn which plants benefit a particular pollinator.

Scientists with the Virginia Natural Heritage Program, a program managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, are responsible for identifying and conserving Virginia’s plants, animals and natural communities.
