Pollinator-Palooza Seed Mix, 1000 sq ft - We designed this seed mix in cooperation with the "Bring Back the Pollinators" campaign of the non-profit Xerces Society. In addition, we donate 5% of the profits from sales of this seed mix to Xerces. To introduce more pollinator-friendly plant diversity, this uniquely diverse, 100% North American native mix includes species that produce not only nectar but the habitat that pollinators require for survival. This shortgrass mix boasts grasses and most wildflowers at 3', with some flowers reaching 5' at maturity and full bloom. Bloom times progress spring through fall. It is for full to part sun and medium soils. Although some of the native plants in this seed mix have ranges that extend beyond zones 3-7, the majority will do best in this zone range. For more detailed information please see the RANGE MAP for each species. Pollinator-Palooza's blend of flowers and grasses will be equally appealing to humans and insects. A pamphlet on how to hand-sow our small area seed mixes is included.
