Florida Native Wildflower Bee Habitat
Did you know 30 percent of our food depends on pollination from bees? Without bees, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy such things as blueberries, melons and almonds. The Florida Native Wildflower Bee Habitat at Heathcote demonstrates plants you can use in your own landscape to provide food and habitat to both honey bees and native bees. The garden is sponsored by the Florida Wildflower Foundation and American Bee Project.
Fun Fact: Florida has more than 200 species of native bees, which don’t sting because they’re not territorial like honey bees.
