Fall Pollinator Fuel Seed Packet

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 perennial 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:

Wildflowers:

Chamaecrista fasciculata - Partridge Pea

Dalea purpurea - Purple Prairie Clover

Astragalus canadensis - Canadian Milk Vetch

Verbena hastata - Blue Vervain

Vernonia noveboracensis - New York Ironweed

Solidago speciosa - Showy Milkweed

Vernonia altissima - Tall Ironweed

Solidago rigida - Stiff Goldenrod

Solidago nemoralis - Dwarf Goldenrod

Aster laevis - Smooth Aster

Aster azureus - Sky Blue Aster

Aster novae-angliae - New England Aster

PLS Lbs Per Acre Broadcast = 6

PLS = Pure Live Seed

Pure Live Seed is a measure of viable seed stated as a percentage. It is the product of total germination times purity.

Example: 96% Germination x 93% Purity = 89% PLS

Broadcast seeding is the process of sowing seed by hand. The seeds are sprinkled into the soil and can be lightly raked to ensure germination.

This mix of native wildflowers typically grows to a height of 3 to 5 feet. Please note that each site is unique and that several factors can affect overall height. These factors include sunlight, hydrology and overall soil health.
