Bee Friendly Plants & Butterfly Gardens

Nature is definitely amazing. Not only are flowers - in all their variety - absolutely gorgeous, but they are part of a delicate ecosystem. Butterflies and bees rely on the flowers for their survival, and we rely on the insects for pollination of all plants and flowers. Given the interdependence between people, flowers and insects, bee and butterfly gardens are an awesome way to celebrate the beauty of nature. And although some butterfly gardens are extravagant, you really only need a few flowers and plants to attract the industrious insects - whether in pots or window boxes! Robertson's Flowers is proud to provide the bright and beautiful flowers that will beckon and welcome them into your yard. Wait, we want bees? You may be surprised to hear us speaking about attracting honeybees to your backyard. But the bee population worldwide is in rapid and dramatic decline, and these little guys need our help. They need healthy and safe places to gather nectar and pollen, so that they can continue to do what they do best. Remember, bees are a critical component to our food supply globally! And don't worry, scientists say that a honeybee foraging for food will pay you no attention - simply give them their space so they don't feel threatened, and you won't have to worry about being stung.

Particularly popular at this time of year are amazing succulents, which are hardy and resilient, and also bring beautiful sophistication to your tablescape. Did You Know?

Flowers to Remember Them on Memorial Day

Here in Philadelphia, we take our freedom very seriously. The rich history and legacy that exudes from the very streets of the city is special and unique to our hometown, and on Memorial Day, we have much to appreciate. A Brief History: In 1866, 'Decoration Day' was set aside for a very special purpose - to decorate the graves of Civil War fallen soldiers. Soon after World War I, the name was changed to Memorial Day, and the scope expanded to forever incorporate and honor brave men and women from all American wars. In 1971, Congress made Memorial Day an official holiday. Read More about Flowers to Remember Them on Memorial Day »
