Provide refuge for pollinators!

Why do flowers come in so many colors? One theory is that the colors attract pollinators. But insects, including solitary bees, honey bees, butterflies, wasps, and flies, don’t see color the same way we do. Their compound eyes can detect most of the colors we can—but they also see UV light, invisible to humans. To their eyes, every beautiful bloom is a veritable bullseye, a combination of visible and UV light patterns that guide them toward sustaining nectar, thus continuing the cycle of life.

Includes New England Aster, Plains Coreopsis, Penstemon, Indian Blanket, Evening Primrose, Wild Bergamot, Milkweed, and Ohio Spiderwort.

500 seeds sow a 3'x10' garden plot.

Growing Instructions
For the best mix, direct sow in fall. Can also be direct sown in early spring around last frost date. Broadcast evenly into a well-prepared, weed-free bed. Packet covers an area of approximately 30' square in size. Rake in lightly, and keep watered until germination.

When seedlings set true leaves, thin to about 12-18" apart. This mix contains a combination of perennials and self-sowing annuals. Some varieties will bloom now; the full mix will appear in the second year.
