Wildflowers For Attracting Pollinators

Wildflowers For Attracting Pollinators

Attract and support pollinators by planting vital wildflowers

Many gardeners are enthusiastically doing their part to support declining pollinator populations by planting nectar-rich wildflowers and host plants, in efforts to provide food and habitat. You can help feed your favorite butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and more by choosing to plant varieties attractive to pollinators. From our popular Pollinator Habitat Collection to our Monarch Perennial Seed Collection and our exclusive Regional Pollinator Mixtures, we make it easy to do good through gardening. All the seed we carry at American Meadows is Non-GMO, Neonicotinoid-Free and Guaranteed to Grow!
