Garden Tags

Our planet’s pollinators are in need of our help. With shrinking habitats and changing landscapes, it’s crucial to create pollinator corridors, pathways, patches, and stepping stones to support their vital work. And now, you can be a part of this critical mission with our innovative Outdoor Aluminum Plant Tags!

We currently focus on the Sonoran Desert, but let us know if you are interested in garden tags for your region or country. Now offering tags for the Midwest and Northeast U.S.!

Join us in creating Pollinator and Plant awareness through the PW Interpretive Trails Project by placing informative garden tags in your natural spaces!

Each tag showcases the plant’s pollinator-attracting properties, ensuring you make informed choices when designing your garden. From native flowering plants to nectar-rich blooms, every plant tag becomes a symbol of support for our precious pollinators.

We offer more tags (more than 150!) than Etsy allows us to display, so if you’re looking for specific plant, you can view a the list of Plants By Common Name.
