The beautiful, colorful blooms of the flowers in our Summer Songbird collection turn into seed heads in the fall that attract and serve songbirds. This collection includes six native perennial plants for sun/part-shade:

• Blue Wood Aster (2)
• Purple Coneflower (2)
• Oxeye Sunflower (2)

Grown sustainably just for your area, these plants:

• Support other wildlife species including birds, butterflies, moths, and bees
• Bloom across three seasons and return each year
• Never need chemicals and require less water once established
• Are deer resistant, once established

Finches, Cardinals, Grosbeaks, Chickadees, Tanagers, and many other birds all enjoy the seeds from flowers in this collection.

This collection of native plants also has the potential to support up to:
• 44 pollen specialist bees, including the long-horned bee, Melissodes trinodis
• 104 butterfly/moth species
• Dozens of other pollinator species foraging for nectar
• 96% of the backyard birds that rely on larval insects to feed their young

All purchases support National Wildlife Federation’s non-profit mission to help declining wildlife and expand native plant availability nationwide.

Pre-Order Now - Shipping for this collection begins in late July.
