Wattle I plant for wildlife?

If you get the plants right, you get the animals, right?!

Any passerby of a wattle can easily see that there are large numbers of insects clamouring, foraging or hovering around.

Wattle flowers are loved by many insects, such as native bees collecting the pollen. Insects bring birds like silvereyes that eat the insects. Some birds stay to build nests, perhaps an extended family of blue wrens. Parrots and bronze wing pigeons love the seeds that follow the flowers. And those seed stalks are eaten by many a critter.

Wattle you plant for wildlife? Wattlever you choose!

Wattle you know wattle you do?
