NEW! Native, Regional, Wildflower Mixtures for Pollinators through Collaboration with Pollinator Partnership!
We are excited to announce our ALL NATIVE SPECIES, regional Pollinator mixtures that we developed with the prestigious "POLLINATOR PARTNERSHIP"—the largest nonprofit in the world dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems. SEE ALL OF THE MIXTURES HERE.
The seed market is full of pollinator wildflower mixtures in a range of prices and regions. Many include non-native and invasive species that can be detrimental to native habitats and cause confusion for well-intentioned consumers. A study cited by the National Park Service showed a greater diversity and abundance of birds and caterpillars were found in yards containing regionally appropriate native plants.
So Stover Seed, in collaboration with Pollinator Partnership, developed a series of regionally specific native plant, pollinator wildflower seed mixtures. Our goal was to provide an ideal wildflower habitat for home gardens by giving pollinators a diversity of flowers that are native to each region and will bloom across growing seasons.
What makes these mixtures special?
Pollinator Partnership’s biologists developed and met the following criteria for each regional mixture:
- Contains a minimum of 12 species
- Provides a minimum of 3 blooming species each season—spring, summer, and fall.
- Contains no invasive species.
- All species are native to each specific region.
- Ecologically designed to provide floral resources for a diversity of pollinator species.
