Hummingbird & Butterfly Mix
This great hand-picked mix of 23 annual and perennial flowers from Aster to Zinnia creates a habitat to attract and feed the hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden all season long. The habitat it creates gives them a perch to rest in while supplying small insects that hummingbirds eat for essential protein, fat, and salts to keep healthy.
The flowers in this mix provide colorful blooms along with nectar and seed for songbirds, hummingbirds and butterflies. The blooms start early and go until mid to late fall, feeding your jeweled friends longer. The pollen and seeds also bring in beneficial bees and songbirds to help with your garden.
The more pollinators you bring into your garden the more productive your whole garden is.
One seed packet will generously plant approximately 16 square feet – a 4x4 foot space.
