Description
Pollinator Insect Wildflower Mix

With honey bees threatened by Colony Collapse Disorder[1], and wild pollinators disappearing due to the loss of habitat as well as pesticide use, promoting and attracting pollinator insects is something that we all can do.  This mix is for anyone wishing to set aside a portion of their yard and gardens to do just that.  It is also a great choice for sowing into vacant lots and as an under planting in orchards.

Originally formulated for The Xerces Society[2], this mix is a good compromise of both native and non-native, annual and perennial plants.  Designed to provide both foraging and nesting resources for short and long tongued bees, butterflies, solitary bees, honey bees and other important pollinators.  These flower species are adaptable to a wide variety of soil conditions and regions of the United States.

Three ounces will cover approximately 1000 square feet.

The mix includes the following annual and perennial varieties: (from most prevalent to least): Blanketflower (Gaillardia aristata), Bachelor Button (Centaurea cyanus), Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), Lacy Phacelia (Phacelia tanacetifolia), Crimson Clover (Trifolium incarnatum), Red Clover (Trifolium pratase), Alfalfa (Ratibida columnaris), Mexican Hat (Ratibida columnaris), Plains Coreopsis (Coreopsis tinctoria), White Clover (Trifolium repens).

You may also be interested in our other wildflower mixes as well as our Hummingbird & Butterfly Mix.
