PollinNation podcast

There has been an explosion of interest in using native plants for pollinators. Along with this interest there is the question of whether nativars — a natural variant that has been found in the wild and brought into cultivation — are equally beneficial to pollinators. Dive into the research on this episode of OSU Extension's PolliNation podcast.
