Description

Did you know that there are over 4,000 North American native bee species? This includes 49 species of bumblebee, as well as sweat bees, miner bees, squash bees, leafcutter bees, and many more. Unlike honeybees, there are no native bees that produce honey, and most do not live in hives or sting! About 25-50% of native bees are specialists – meaning they have adapted to gather nectar and pollen from a specific type of flower. This wildflower mix includes a range of native wildflowers that will nourish dozens of specialist bee species. Did you know that honeybees are not native to North America? They were introduced by humans as part of our agricultural landscape, for uses such as pollinating crops, making honey and beeswax. A honeybee can consume up to 5x as much as a solitary native bee.

What’s the buzz? Our exclusive Native Bee Banquet Wildflower Seed Mix was carefully curated to provide a buffet of blooms that support a healthy ecosystem for our native bees. Pollinator populations have plummeted in recent decades due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and various other factors. However, we can all play a part in making it better by rebuilding habitat in our own yards to support bees, butterflies, and other flying friends. Native wildflowers play an essential role in a thriving ecosystem. This mix features native wildflowers with wide native ranges across large areas of the United States, adaptable to a wide range of growing conditions.
