Site 3: Library Planters

While these planters are appealing to humans, we have not found that pollinators visit them with any frequency.  Some of the flowers perhaps do not produce enough pollen or nectar to attract pollinators.  

These planters do, however, contain Salvia that attract honey bees and bumblebees in other beds. Perhaps in this case, the planters are far enough removed from other beds that the pollinators do not notice them, or the trip is not worth the energy used.
