A selection of seed mixes to help
Restore Honeybee & Native Pollinator Habitat

Pollinators, including honeybees, monarch butterflies, and
other native species, are essential to the world’s food supply,
but their populations are declining at alarming rates.
We offer a dynamic selection of native plant seeds
to help restore vital habitat for imperiled pollinators.

  • A perennial mix suitable for areas ranging from full sun
    to shade, with variable soil conditions.

    Also available without grasses (ERNMX-125)

  • This mix of native wildflowers and some grasses
    provides a gorgeous display of color from spring to fall.
    It is designed for upland sites with well-drained soils
    and full sun to semi-shaded areas. This mix is ideal for
    attracting butterflies and hummingbirds.

    Also available without grasses (ERNMX-153-1)

  • This mix of grasses and forbs features
    pollinator-friendly species that are typically not favored
    by deer. While no native mix is deer-proof, this one
    helps minimize deer browsing.

  • This mix is showy the first year if planted before
    mid-June. With proper management, this mix
    will be showy in the second year.

  • This mix is showy the second year and beyond,
    changing color and texture as it matures.
