Star Performers Factsheets

The Star Performers series is designed to show the best of the best in bee plants. Each selected plant has been investigated in the field by our team and used extensively in our Demo Farms. They rank as star performers because they maximize nutrition by having any combination of one or more of these six great features:

  1. The plant flowers at a time of pollen or nectar dearth (e.g. spring, autumn and even winter)
  2. The plant flowers profusely with high density and large quantity of flowers per plant
  3. Each flower delivers large quantities of pollen or nectar; such plants may have few flowers
  4. The flowers deliver high quality pollen nutrition (e.g., crude protein content).
  5. The flowers give bees easy access to pollen and nectar for bee
