Fall Pollinator Fuel Native Seed Mix

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, and a staff favorite, Ironweed.

If you plant it....they will come (and fuel up)!

Contains the following species:

Wildflowers:

Chamaecrista fasciculata - Partridge Pea

Dalea purpurea - Purple Prairie Clover

Aster umbellatus - Flat-topped White Aster

Vernonia altissima - Tall Ironweed

Astragalus canadensis - Canadian Milk Vetch

Aster azureus - Sky Blue Aster

Vernonia missurica - Missouri Ironweed

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.
