WILDFLOWERS for bees and butterflies

Asked May 24, 2016, 8:03 AM EDT

Hello I have a long 150ft strip of my property line that I would like to use plant some type of flowers or shrubs to help pollinators. My area is fairly narrow less than 2 feet. Do you have any recommendations for perhaps a perennial l flower I can plant. Thank you Paul Kelley

You did not mention the site sun versus shade and the mature height and width of the plants. Here is a good link from our website to attract pollinators http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/earth-friendly/how-attract-and-conserve-pollinatorsnatural-enemies-you...
Also, based on your site conditions see suggestions for groundcovers http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/groundcover-list and native plants http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/earth-friendly/20-recommended-native-plants-maryland mh
