Native Pollinator Seed Mix
Our most diverse pollinator meadow mix ever!
Attract bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and beneficial insects with this dramatic wildflower show. The combination of native annuals and perennials in this seed mix provides an ongoing succession of flowers over multiple years. This seed mix includes native bunch grasses to provide nesting habitat for bees and to reduce weed encroachment.
Unlike other ‘pollinator’ seed mixes for the Northwest, this mix includes 100% true native species, including plants that you won't find in cheap, mass-produced "wildflower seed mixes," such as tomcat clover (Trifolium willdenovii), large camas (Camassia leichtlinii), and Puget gumweed (Grindelia integrifolia). This mix is formulated at a seeding rate of 60 seeds per square foot.
Note that the photos here show the changes in blooming species across the seasons. Because of the diversity of species in the mix, it is a constantly changing spectrum of plants, a spectrum that also changes from year-to-year.
