Native Perennial Wildflower Mix Seeds

(P) Pkt 1/4 oz.
Item #52239-PK-P1


Beautiful blend of bloomers that attracts pollinators

This mix of North American native perennials is perfect for pollinator friendly habitats. Native pollinators rely on native blooming plants, and these important species are the best sources of nectar and pollen for butterflies, bees, beneficial insects, and hummingbirds, and the seed heads serve as food for many species of birds.

From the low mounds of dainty, aster-esque flowers of the white upland aster (a goldenrod) to the bright and cheery daisylike yellow blooms of the black-eyed Susan and the tall, fluffy, purple, rosy red, and white spires of the gayfeather, and everything in between, these ornamental wildflowers provide a long season of beautiful blooms to perennial borders, naturalistic landscapes, cottage, meadow, and prairie gardens, year after year. They diversify a vegetable garden, making it healthier and more robust, and enhance pollinator activity, increasing yields. And they provide loads of showy blooms for cut flowers, and some are suitable for dried arrangements.

These hardy companionable species are low care and easy to grow in most USDA Zones across the U.S. But this mix is not recommended for southern Florida or extreme southern Texas.
