After more than 25 years of trialing plants, The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden knows which plants grow and look best in our region. By focusing that list to the plants that benefit pollinators the most, they have created the Zoo’s Best Plants for Pollinators Plant Series. They are calling these the “Zoo’s Best” Plants.
Working with Burger Farm and Garden Center, local plant growers and other independent local garden centers; the Zoo has branded a line of plants which gardeners can recognize as easy to grow, beautiful, and pollinator-friendly plants. A portion of the proceeds from every purchase will support further plant trialing at the Zoo. For more information about the Zoo’s Best Plants for Pollinators Program, contact them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
