USDA Plant Hardiness Zones

To help gardeners understand which plants will grow well for them, the entire USA has been segmented into ‘Plant Hardiness Zones’. Knowing your zone number is helpful when shopping for plants because:

  • Cold-area gardeners can avoid buying plants that simply won’t survive their lowest winter temperatures.
  • Warm-area gardeners can steer clear of plants that need a period of cold weather in order to bloom again.

Plant for Monarchs this Season

Annual Monarch Collection

We’re excited to announce the introduction of two new seed packet collections for spring 2015. We’ve created a Monarch Perennial Wildflower Seed Collection and a Monarch Annual Wildflower Seed Collection. Each collection contains five packets of Wildflowers that attract Monarchs and give them a place to eat, rest and reproduce.

Perennial Monarch Collection

Our Monarch Butterfly Perennial Wildflower Seed Collection contains Asclepias tuberosa (Butterfly Milkweed), Asclepias syriaca (Common Milkweed), Asclepias incarnata (Swamp Milkweed), Eupatorium fistulosum (Joe Pye Weed), and Solidago rigida (Stiff Goldenrod). This colorful mixture will bloom in the second season and for years after, making it the perfect long-lasting choice for any garden or meadow. Monarchs use these varieties to pollinate and as breeding grounds, and will be coming to and from your garden all season long!

Annual Monarch Collection

Our Monarch Butterfly Annual Wildflower Seed Collection contains Zinnia elegans (Zinnia), Cosmos sulphuris (Sulphur Cosmos), Lobularia maritime (Sweet Alyssum), Gaillardia puchella (Indian Blanket), and Tagetes erecta (Marigold ‘Cracker Jack’ Mix). This colorful mixture will bloom in the first year and is the perfect choice for gardens, meadows, green spaces and anything in between! Monarchs use these varieties to pollinate and as breeding grounds, and planting this mixture will make their lives a little easier.

Whether you have acres of land or are planting a city garden, these collections are the perfect choice. You’ll not only enjoy the gorgeous blooms of native Wildflowers, but also be visited by Monarchs all season long and know you’re doing your part to help the disappearing Monarch population. Happy Gardening!

    I live in the Charleston, SC area. Is this a good area for the wildflowers you recommend to help the Monarch butterflies?

      Hi Sally,

      Absolutely! You are in hardiness zone 8, which makes you a prime candidate for growing almost anything.

      Happy Gardening,

      Amanda
