• 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

Great Plants

The plants arrived in fantastic packaging, a container that had individual slots for each plant and were all in good condition. Plants are doing well and I look forward to next year to see how they have expanded.

Summer songbird

Received the item via FedEx. The plants were very well packaged and the plants were still damp after being on a truck for 2 days. The plants themselves look very healthy and made a nice addition to my garden.
