Regionally adapted open pollinated native wildflowers and grasses make up this mix developed by us and approved by our friends at The Xerces Society. This blend, appropriate for Ohio, Indiana, Western Pennsylvania and Western New York, provides nectar and food sources for numerous pollinators and larva. Wildflowers were selected to continuously bloom and provide forage areas all season long, while grasses add diversification, structure and habitat to round out out the mix. Our partnership with The Xerces Society ensures that your seed mix is neonicotinoid and pesticide free and provides a safe habitat for all regionally important pollinators.
