Having a large space is not a requirement in order to plant a perennial pollinator garden. Planting a small urban perennial bed is easy to do and might encourage more pollinators such as bees and butterflies to come into your community. Native plants are a good choice because they have lower watering requirements and, of course, native plants support native pollinators. In this design you will see easy-to-grow perennials that are drought tolerant; Coreopsis ‘Early Sunrise’ (above), Coreopsis ‘Sunfire’, and Echinacea ‘PowWow Wildberry’ (right).
Keep in mind that perennials (below) take a few years to develop, but will soon fill in to be a gorgeous little bed. Watch this short video sponsored by the Wave Petunia company and learn how to plant these perennial plants in your small garden bed.
