    Design tip: Plant in swaths. To make it easy on pollinators, group plants they like in clumps and swaths. Imagine being insect-sized flying over an urban landscape. It would be far easier for you to spot a large purple clump of flowering lavender than a single plant. Once you reached the lavender swath, it would make for efficient foraging. In this rooftop lounge area by Hampstead Garden Design, masses of salvia (Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’) and lavender (Lavandula angustifolia ‘Hidcote’) come together for a beautiful pollinator-friendly planting. If you don’t have room for a full swath of pollinator-friendly potted plants, including some as part of mixed ornamental containers is still beneficial.Work with a landscape designer on Houzz

    4. Pollinator-friendly. Even if you’re short on gardening space, a couple of containers on a rooftop or city patio can help support native bees, pollinating birds, butterflies and other insects. This roof terrace in Marylebone, London, is bordered with containers filled with bee favorites like lavender and purple-flowering sage (Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’, zones 4 to 8) as well as olive trees and standard and horned violet (Viola cornuta, zones 6 to 11) to round out the design. Other pollinator-friendly plants to consider that grow well in containers: bee balm (Monarda spp.), honeysuckle (Lonicera spp.), catmint (Nepeta spp.), ‘Autumn Joy’ stonecrop (Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, zones 3 to 10) and many varieties of herbs, like oregano, chives and thyme.Water requirement: ModerateLight requirement: Full sun

    Pastel-colored plants are combined to create a colorful yet calming atmosphere in this small roof garden. The gray containers and silver-foliage olive trees are the perfect foil for the blue flower theme, composed of lavender (Lavandula sp.), sage (Salvia x superba) and violets (Viola cornuta). A few outdoor pillows in powder blue link the seating with the plantings as a final touch.
