Fall is a very important time for pollinators. Monarchs are migrating and honey bees and native bees are storing up food for the long winter ahead. Our Fall Pollinator Fuel Mix contains the species that bloom in the fall and provide the maximum amount of forage (Goldenrod and Aster species) for these important insects. We've also added Partridge Pea, a great late summer annual that provides first year color while the perennial wildflowers establish.

Some things to remember:

This is a mix of mostly perennials wildflowers that will bloom in late summer and early fall once established.

This is a great booster mix to add to existing native plantings. Make sure to seed in areas where good seed to soil contact can be established.

Keep this standing tall all fall and winter long once it is done blooming. Native bees will nest in the hollow stems of these plants. Cut it back in the spring once it starts to green up.

Contains the following species:


Chamaecrista fasciculata - Partridge Pea

Dalea purpurea - Purple Prairie Clover

Astragalus canadensis - Canadian Milk Vetch

Verbena hastata - Blue Vervain

Solidago rigida - Stiff Goldenrod
