(24-96" tall x 18-72" wide) When it's time to start or expand your pollinator garden, our Pollinator Meadow Native Plant Collection makes it easy! The plants' long bloom periods overlap, guaranteeing a continual symphony of pink, purple, and white flowers and an abundant supply of nectar. In spring, the Swamp Milkweed's foliage feeds Monarch butterfly larvae, and the summer flowers provide nectar for a wide array of pollinators. In mid summer, Common Milkweed takes center stage with clusters of flowers resembling puffy pink clouds. Summer brings intriguing, fragrant Bee Balm flowers that are irresistible to bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies. For the finale, Joe Pye Weed and Purple Aster provide essential nectar sources from late summer into fall. These deer-resistant, native plants also make lovely and fragrant cut flowers. Plant in full sun and average to moist soil.
