Butterfly and Pollinator Kit

Common name: For the Butterflies

Native plant

Our butterfly and pollinator kit offers gardeners an opportunity to add a few key species to host and feed critically important pollinators and spread native plants to areas that they have disappeared. We offer these plants to cover roughly 45 sq. feet on 18 inch centers in as full sun as you can get them. This kit can get a bit tall, with plants reaching 48 to 50 or more inches, but can be used for many garden flower needs as it will bloom for most of the summer and into the fall.

We include the following species:

  • (3) Northern Dropseed- Sporobolus heterolepis
  • (2) Common Milkweed- Asclepias syriaca
  • (3) Butterfly Weed- Asclepias tuberosa
  • (3) Common Mountain Mint- Pycnanthemum virginianum
  • (2) New England Aster- Symphyotrichum novae-angliae
  • (2) Sweet Joe Pye Weed- Eutochium purpureum
  • (2) Wild Bergamot- Menarda fistulosa

Looking to add a shrub to your pollinator garden? Try Frangrant Wild Indigo (Amorpha fruticosa).
