This mixture is composed of nectar producing flowers for adult butterflies as well as milkweed which will provide egg-laying sites and food for monarch caterpillars. Monarch populations have been in decline for a number of years, and the loss of nectar sources and milkweeds has been indicated as a major contributor to these declines. This mixture is composed of native wildflowers, garden flowers and milkweeds which supply nectar sources for adult monarchs. Milkweeds are utilized for egg-laying and provide food to monarch caterpillars. This mixture is appropriate for home gardens, commercial landscaping, golf courses and other maintained sites. It is also suitable for attracting Honey Bees.
Suitable for all US zones except Florida.
