Ladybugs Are Good For Your Plants

Ladybugs are a very good insect to have around a flower bed because they eat the larvae that the other insect such as squash beetle and moths place on the plants.  

There are over 450 different species of the ladybug in North America. 

You see, the average ladybug now a day is either orange or red with black spots on its shells. Ladybug comes in a form that is rarely seen, which is black all over with red spots on its shell. The ladybug is a very voracious predator against many insects that can ruin or tear apart a garden. The ladybug will search out larvae of main mites, beetles, and moths, but the lady will even feast on its young to survive when it is wintertime. To welcome the ladybug into your garden, you will need to plant daisies and alyssum herbs to attract them and invite them into your garden. 

The ladybug can get anywhere from 1/16 of an inch to 3/8 of an inch long in its lifetime. The life cycle of a ladybug from larvae to adult is usually 3-4 weeks, then the entire adult life cycle for the ladybug begins. The female ladybug can lay eggs under the leaves of the plants in the garden in as little as one day after becoming an adult. These larvae then begin to eat the moth and beetles larvae before they hatch.

The Red Cardinal Flower has vibrant red blooms and tall, erect stalks; it adds a splash of color and a touch of elegance to gardens, parks, and various outdoor spaces. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, it brings several advantages, making it a popular choice for landscapers and gardeners. Cardinal Flower The scarlet-hued Lobelia cardinalis is a perennial in the bellflower family. Its tall, nectar-filled flower spikes attract hummingbirds and create a beautiful display in your garden. The plant's common name refers to the red robes a Roman Catholic cardinal wears.     Natural Habitat Of The Cardinal Flower Lobelia is native to the North and South American continents and blooms from July through September. This moisture-loving plant grows on stream banks and in low woods, marshes, and meadows across the United States. Appearance Of The Perennial If you want to create a handsome show in your garden, Lobelia is sure to delight. The plant's fiery spires yield brilliant red blooms that open gradually from the bottom to the top of their racemes. Each long, narrow, tube-shaped blossom has two flat upper petals and three lower petals that spread out at the tips. The delicate plant crown leafy 2’-4' stems, covered with shiny, lance-shaped, bright green leaves that sometimes have a bronze or reddish tint. The leaves alternate as they climb the stems, enhancing the blooms to create a lively riot of color. In the Garden Lobelia is a favorite of gardeners who love adding bold splashes of crimson to their garden. This plant is perfect for shady woodland plots, wet meadow plantings, water gardens, pollinator gardens, and rain gardens. Its long stems can add height to borders and create depth when placed in the back sections of your landscape. The blossoms are most spectacular from midsummer into fall, and they make excellent cut blooms. Ecology Of The Perennials Some people say that Lobelia will bring hummingbirds in from the sky. The plant's blooming period is in sync with the late-summer migration of ruby-throated hummingbirds who are traveling south to Mexico. The birds pollinate the plant by dipping their beaks into the plants' long, red tubes. The blossoms are also very attractive to swallowtail butterflies and bees, making them a wonderful centerpiece in a pollinator garden.
