via Are native cultivars as valuable to pollinators as native species?

This excellent research and article by Annie White helps us understand which of the native cultivars available for purchase are great for pollinators and which cultivars we should avoid in preference of true native species. Thankfully some of my favourite plants for appearance and colour are just as good as the true natives. Most nativars however do not provide the same level of access, nectar or pollen quality and therefore are less desirable to pollinators. This matters a lot to the increasing number of us who care about a garden being a habitat that supports life and works with nature in balance.
