Wow, linrose, you sound like you have a lot going for you and a lot of pollinators to enjoy what you've grown. Keep up the good work.

I want more Penstemon digitalis too. I do collect seed from them and have been spreading them, but it seems like a slow process--or maybe I'm just impatient or not doing it right!

I guess I have a lot of the same flowers you mention...just not in great numbers yet.

I have to keep telling myself the fall is when everything really shine for me. That's when I see the most pollinatos.

As for trees, I can't wait until my black gum trees start to bloom. I remember tons of tiny pollinators coming to the flowers where I grew up.
