If you scroll below the map, you will see the "Value to BeneficialInsects" collection (which includes some 1,500+ records for the U.S. and Canada). Within the collection thereare separate categories for native bees in general, bumble bees, honey bees, key plants that provide nest habitat,and plants for conservation biological control. Within each sub-category, you can refine your search based uponwhich state you live in, as well as a number of other categories (annuals vs perennials, bloom time, shadetolerance, soil moisture requirements, height, flower color, and so on). http://www.wildflower.org/collections/Delaware Native Plants for Native Beeshttp://dda.delaware.gov/plantind/forms/publications/Delaware%20Native%20Plants%20for%20Native%20Bees.pdfPollinator planting guides http://pollinator.org/guides.htmWildflower meadows for wildlife and pollinators (plant list p 5) http://plants.usda.gov/pollinators/Conservation_Cover_Wildflower_Meadow_for_Wildlife_and_Pollinators_327a.pdfUSDA-NRCS Seedling ID Guide for Native Prairie Plants www.plant-materials.nrcs.usda.gov/pubs/mopmcpu6313.pdfManaging Alternative Pollinators http://www.sare.org/Learning-Center/Books/Managing-Alternative-PollinatorsBumble Bee & Butterfly Conservationhttp://www.xerces.org/bumblebees/Conserving Bumble Bees http://www.xerces.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/conserving_bb.pdfRusty patched and yellowbanded bumble bee pocket guides & “Wanted” postershttp://www.xerces.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/affinis_pocketid.pdfhttp://www.xerces.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/terricola_pocketid1.pdfhttp://www.xerces.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/wanted_affinis.pdfhttp://www.xerces.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/wanted_terricola.pdfButterfly conservation http://www.xerces.org/butterfly-conservation/
