The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge (MPGC) is a nationwide call to action to preserve and create gardens and landscapes that help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across America.

    Comments about American Meadows Monarch Butterfly Perennial Wildflower Seed Collection:

    I just threw the seeds on a tilled bed but my neighbor's chickens ate the seeds. I have seen one monarch thou. I think the butter fly weed has survived but there is a lot of crab grass and other stuff infesting the bed and am just ignoring those right now.

      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).
