Planting pollinator-friendly plants - baby steps

I find campus plants to be exceedingly boring and just reflect what's available at the landscapers. So I'm going to add a little bit here and there. 

This is my first addition. On the east side of the Cohen Science Center I added joe-pye weed (Eutrochium purpureum) a few days ago and three smaller common milkweeds (Asclepias syriaca).  In the picture, roses are in the background. 

Up in the greenhouse, I have about twenty more plants growing and when they get 12" (totally arbitrary), I'll plant them outside.
