Description

American Meadows Limited Edition Iconic Meadow Mixes are inspired by breathtaking wildflower meadows across the country. With our 2024 exclusive Monarch Highway Wildflower Seed Mix, you can create Monarch Butterfly habitat to support their long migration journey. Every fall, Monarchs fly from their summer habitats in the United States and Canada to their overwintering habitat in Mexico. For some, that can be as far as 3,000 miles! Monarch Butterflies are at risk due to habitat loss – but the more that we grow host plants and nectar plants along their migration path, the more we can support the rebound of a healthy Monarch Butterfly population!

This mix includes a variety of Milkweed species, the host plant for Monarch Butterfly caterpillars; Milkweeds are the only plants that Monarch butterflies will lay their eggs on – and the only plants that Monarch caterpillars require to grow into adult butterflies. Abundant wildflowers with plenty of nectar will fuel adult Monarch Butterflies as they migrate to and from their warm winter climates. In addition to supporting Monarch Butterflies, this wildflower mix will attract a wide variety of birds and pollinators to your yard.

What's in this Mix

This mix includes 15 wildflowers, 3 annuals for first-year color, 1 biennial for second season color, and 11 perennials for blooms in the second season and beyond.
