Default Insect Visitors to Illinois wildflowers

I was just reading the latest Wild Ones e-newsletter and they mentioned this site for helping determine which insects are visiting your plants. I thought it was good info. The Illinois Wildflowers website is always very informative, I use it because many natives to IL are native here also.

Thanks for sharing.

I think there is a large overlap...I know a great many are native to the Mid-Atlantic states as well.

I barely scanned the list yet, but I was happy to see that Erigeron annuus (Annual Fleabane), which I've grown more and more fond of in the past couple of years, has a long list of pollinators which utilize it!
