‘Navitar’ is a relatively new horticultural term coined by esteemed plantsman Dr. Allan Armitage, an author and horticultural professor at the University of Georgia. Navitar refers to both deliberately cultivated selections and naturally occurring variations of native plants. The naturally occurring varieties are often found in the wild or possibly discovered in someone’s backyard.
Most of us are aware of the alarming decline in our bee and butterfly populations. Recent studies indicate that planting a garden of any size, whether it’s a large meadow or even a container, can attract and nourish pollinators. A network of pollinator gardens in neighborhoods, cities and rural areas throughout our country could furnish enough habitat to sustain healthy communities of pollinators and other beneficial insects.
Gardeners can make a difference by including numerous plants that benefit pollinators in their landscapes. We hope this selection of natives, nativars and pollinator-friendly plants will inspire you to usher some into your border.
