The work of pollination is never over - even after dark! While some flowers close when the sun goes down, many flowers are still accessible at night. When our day-active pollinators turn in for the evening, nocturnal pollinators such as moths, bats, beetles, and even some species of bees take on the night shift to feast on nectar. Many bat species are in decline, faced with less roosting places and declining food availability. A single little brown bat, which has a body no bigger than a grape, can eat 4 to 8 grams of insects each night.
This collection has a variety of wildflowers to attract a wide diversity of insects that bats feed on, including flowers that release their fragrance in the evening when bats are most active.
