Broward College's school colors are blue and white, so we selected many blue and white native wildflowers to beautify the area. These species are native to Broward County.

All Stages of Life

Many know that brightly colored flowers attract pollinators like butterflies, bees, and even moths. But did you know that some larvae of these insects actually need to chow down on different plant types?

When planting a garden to attract pollinators, it is important to utilize plant species that support pollinators at all stages in their life cycle. Remember, butterflies have to grow into their wings!
