Monarch Flyway Wildflower Mix

 

This mix was put together specifically for migrating monarchs!  Containing 15% Commom Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) seeds in combination with 31 other Monarch favorites, this mix will provide habitat crucial to the successful journey of the Danaus plexippus.  Four native grasses have also been added to increase diversity, aid in soil stabilization, and improve fall and winter aesthetics.

 

Plant in mid spring through early summer, into a firm and weed free seed bed 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep.  Irrigate in dry conditions to improve germination.  Weed control prior to planting will allow for quicker establishment.  This mix will perform over a wide range of soil types and environmental conditions.  Various shapes, sizes, and colors of blooms will start to appear 8-10 weeks after emergence.  Bloom intensity and frequency will improve in the years following as perennial wildflowers establish.
