Urban Pollinator Mix

Transform your lawn or garden areas, small or large, into native grasses and wildflowers to help restore habitat for bees, butterflies, and moths. This mix of native, short-grass species and wildflowers will reach 3-4’ high and provide year-round interest. Little maintenance required; mow just once each spring to knock down the previous season’s growth. Spend time enjoying wildlife rather than time on a lawnmower.

Ask us about the Minnesota Lawns2Legumes program for state-sponsored funding to implement this Urban Pollinator Mix or visit bwsr.state.mn.us/lawns-legumes. Other states are developing similar cost-share programs. If you desire a more traditional lawn, but still want to support bee habitat, consider our Bee Lawn Seed Mix, found on page 63.

Our wildflower mixtures contain 10-20 species providing natural beauty and pollinator habitat all season long. Plant into weed-free soil in spring, early summer or late fall. Weeds are inevitable during establishment; pull or mow weeds before they go to seed or become too competitive with the flowers.
