Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted "to evaluate native wildflower seed mixes for cost, ease of establishment, bloom sequence, coverage and attractiveness to bees, butterflies, and other native pollinators; and to develop recommendations for wildflower seed mixes and guidelines for establishing Operation Pollinator of Golf Course plantings in the transition climatic zone." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that three different wildflower mixes were planted at six sites in Kentucky, and that attractiveness to pollinators was assessed using bee bowls and capturing pollinators in nets or containers. Reports that "five wildflowers were particularly dominant and remained in bloom for most of the field season" and that "the most abundant groups of native pollinators included small, often colorful, solitary bees, yellow and brown-striped flower flies, and several species of native bumblebees. Concludes that the research project, when fully completed, "will provide specifics about which mixes to use and how best to establish them and will also document their benefits."
