color of flowers affects pollination
how does the color of flowers affect their ability to pollinate?
Bees, flies and other pollinators rely on "built-in" memory of what is safe and beneficial to "eat". They aren't foodies willing to try new things like the latest, snazziest hybrid. Their meat and potatoes are native plants with naturalistic color and form. This is an article that breaks down color by type of pollinator. https://www.fws.gov/pollinators/pdfs/pollinatorbookletfinalrevweb.pdf
The Xerces Society is a non-profit that encourages pollinator preservation and the use of pollinator-friendly plants. They have a plant list for your location at this webpage: https://xerces.org/pollinator-conservation/plant-lists/
