If you live in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia and want to create your own pollinator paradise, we've got you covered! Feed the bees, attract Monarch Butterflies and reduce the need for mowing with a perennial seed mix that establishes in 2 to 3 growing seasons and provides long term habitat. This mix was designed to bloom late spring through fall.

Some things to remember:

This is a mix of mostly perennial native grasses and wildflowers. This mix does contain some annuals for first growing season color, but will take 2 to 3 growing seasons to fully establish.

Our East Coast Pollinator Mix grows well in dry to mesic (well-drained) soils. It will need at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight a day and established heights will range from 3 to 5 feet.
