The Monarch Butterfly Wildflower Mix contains 4 different varieties of Milkweed that provide habitat and food for caterpillars, along with a blend of nectar-rich wildflowers that provide early-to-late season food for butterflies and other pollinators. This mixture thrives in any sunny spot in the garden and the first annuals bloom just weeks after planting, making this a great choice for both spring or fall seeding. Replace part of your lawn with pollinator-friendly wildflowers, create a designated pollinator wildflower patch, or plant this mix in large planters in your small space or container garden. The pollinator possibilities are endless!
