Plants have developed unique features to attract pollinators, such as bats, bees and hummingbirds. Hummingbirds like tubular shaped flowers, butterflies prefer flat topped flowers and bats are attracted to plants that bloom at night. Scent and colors can both play a role in attracting pollinators as well.
