      We have an area that is a little on the steep side that needed a pop of color. I chose the pollinator mix and the results were wonderful. I'll be planting more of this mixture next spring.

          Comments about American Meadows Midwest Pollinator Wildflower Seed Mix:

          My husband and I absolutely love these wildflowers. They attract plenty of bees and butterflies to pollinate our vegetable garden. And seeing the insects is an added bonus. The flowers are also very beautiful. And there is always a new type of flower popping up.

          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).

          Find Your Planting Zone:
