Native Pollinator Meadow Seed Mix 1 (For West of the Cascades)
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 cheap, mass-produced "wildflower seed mixes," this mix includes true native species, and is formulated at a seeding rate of 80-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.
