Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Great Design Plant: Culver's Root
How to use it. Culver's root is perfect for a rain garden or any low area in your landscape. Place it in the back of a bed or in the middle for a sculptural effect. Planting notes. Butterflies, moths and bees swarm to blooms that look great during full moons. This really is an easy, interesting and well-behaved Midwest native one that everyone should try. Dig it in any time, from early spring to late fall — even in winter if you put several inches of mulch on top. Scatter the seeds over bare soil in spring and you should get seedlings, too.More about attracting birds and butterflies
The wildlife value of Culver's root (Veronicastrum virginicum, zones 3 to 8) tops many gardener's lists, including that of Central Plains gardener Benjamin Vogt, who considers it a staple design plant. Don't let the "root" part fool you; this plant has spiky white flowers that butterflies, moths and bees adore.Benefits and tolerances: Makes a perfect rain garden additionWhen to plant: Sow seeds anytime but cover with mulch during winter.

Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Gardening for the Bees, and Why It’s a Good Thing
Native bees are essential to our species. Through pollination they provide billions of dollars’ worth of free services to our food supply. Through floral fidelity, evolutionary sync and specialized strategies like buzz pollination, they are better than nonnative honeybees, who are already overstressed and overworked. By gardening for bees and other pollinating insects, we ensure our health and the health of the landscape beyond the garden fence. Why would you garden any other way?More: Garden for Wildlife to Reap Rich Rewards

2. Design a garden for native bees. We know that bees are an important part of our gardens and contributors to the food we eat, but we may not know why that is so. Part of designing a garden to accommodate bees involves learning more about them and eliminating misconceptions we might have. This story explains how our native bee friends live and how we can make room for them in our gardens. Read more about why it’s important to garden for bees
