Plant Information

The Beneficial Bird Pre-Planned Garden includes 20 perennial plants that attract and support birds throughout all four seasons. Branches, berries, and seed-producing blooms all work together to provide important food and habitat to your local birds. Mature plants will fill a 24 x 12' rectangular bed or 288 square feet of planting space.

Includes: 2 'Magnus' Echinacea (Coneflower), 2 'Goblin' Gaillardia (Blanket Flower), 2 'Major Wheeler' Honeysuckle Vine (Lonicera sempervirens), 2 Wild Elderberry (Sambucus canadensis), 3 Baptisia (Blue Wild Indigo), 3 'Queen Victoria' Lobelia (Cardinal Flower), 3 'Purple Dome' New England Aster, and 3 'Munstead' English Lavender (Lavandula).

Comes with detailed care instructions and 3 diagrams illustrating correct layouts for planting in rectangular, island, and corner-shaped beds. We do reserve the right to make substitutions; however, our replacement plants are always very similar.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
