    1. Exactly what I said this morning! Posted 2 months ago
    2. Also, just saw this and realized that my native grasses I planted may have paid off:
      "''Stirellus bicolor'' feeds on bluestem grasses and broomsedge."
      I planted a type of native bluestem!

      1. Perfect! You have your own little Ark going on! Do you have a wishlist of native plants that you hope to plant? Posted 2 months ago
        1. By 'ark', I mean this:

          I'm obsessed with this concept. No matter how small the space, it really does matter!

          1. I have planted a lot of native seeds here, but I don't know that I will contribute anymore if we are planning on moving in the near future. Posted 2 months ago
            1. True, but maybe whoever moves there next will keep the natives that you've already planted? Posted 2 months ago

Stirellus bicolor is a species of leafhopper native to North America. Two color forms are known. Adults found during the summer in hot climates are typically iridescent with prominent black stripes. Specimens in cooler climates are drab with translucent wings. The two varieties were originally thought to be separate species.
