Native Plant and Sustainability Conference: Pollinator Interactions with Native Cultivars
Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens' annual Native Plant and Sustainability Conference brings together national experts for a one-day forum on plants, landscapes and our roles as environmental stewards.
Pollinator Interactions with Native Cultivars | Dr. Annie White
A growing demand for landscape-worthy native plants has fueled an increase in the selection, breeding and availability of native cultivars. However, are the cultivars as valuable in pollinator habitat gardens as the unimproved species? Dr. White will explore this question, sharing four years of field data measuring pollinator preference.

1) Review the increase in development of native cultivars in recent years, and why the market for these plants has increased.
2) See data from Dr. White's field studies relating to pollinator preferences between unimproved native plants and native cultivars.
3) Discuss the application of these findings to the landscape, and which plant varieties are most effective at attracting pollinators.
