August 21st marks National Honey Bee Day. Honey bees assist with the creation of approximately 33 percent of the world's food supply, transporting pollen from one flower to another, enabling the plant to survive. We then use these plants for food, in the creation of medicine, and to produce oils and other raw materials.
Our real estate agents know that one way to help these crucial pollinators thrive in the local area is by adding native flowering plants and trees to your landscaping. These plants serve as a natural source of pollen and nectar for bees, ensuring they have the nutrients they need to continue pollinating crops. Here are some Iowa-friendly plants that help pollinators do their jobs.
