Nanz & Kraft Florists simply can't thank bees enough. These multi-tasking powerhouses are responsible for pollinating 90 commercially grown crops and over 80% of all flowering plants. Together, plants and bees have adapted and evolved for millions of years each to the benefit of the other, refining their symbiotic relationship over time like the most successful romances do. We're taking a minute to honor the work of bees by showing off one of their favorite flowers. Read More about Sunny, Bee-Friendly Sunflowers

Insect-Resistant Butterfly & Bee Gardens

What is more peaceful than relaxing in your own backyard during the summer? We love long sunny afternoons in a backyard oasis of lounge chairs, lemonade, and peace. Sounds idyllic, doesn't it? Make this serene day even more beautiful by inviting butterflies to your afternoon - it is as easy as adding a few beautiful flowers to your patio or yard.

Why Bees? The honeybee population is in dramatic decline globally, as well as here in the US. Bees are critical to the ecosystem, especially in the area of cultivating the food (vegetables, fruit and grains) that we need.

Just leave them to do their job, and they will ignore you.  Read More about Insect-Resistant Butterfly & Bee Gardens
