Our Butterfly Seed Mixes contain twenty percent more flower seed than our other prairie mixes, creating a magnetic setting for butterflies and other long-tongued pollinators. A variety of flowering natives, chosen for their importance as nectar sources, bloom all season-long from mid-spring into late fall. Plan for the long-term with a native perennial habitat that will support butterflies for years to come. For well-drained sandy, gravelly and rocky soils. Contains at least 18 wildflowers and three or more grasses.

Establishing a native plant community from seed can take 3 years or more. Read our Seed Mix Establishment Guide.

Pure Live Seed Notes
All seed is Pure Live Seed (PLS). One PLS pound is defined as the weight of seed required to equal one pound of 100% pure, germinable seed. This is calculated based upon each seed lot's purity and germination tests. We track the ecotype origin of our seed inventory and provide this information at customer request.
