This kit includes 3 different easy-to-grow pollinator powerhouse species. You receive three plants of each species – enough to create a pollinator pocket garden capable of producing blooms that nourish pollinators from Spring to Fall.
The Summer Kit includes:
> downy goldenrod
Downy goldenrod gets its name from the soft hairs that cover the stems. Common in well-drained, sunny sites like slopes and roadsides, this drought-tolerant species is an excellent late-season nectar and pollen source for a wide variety of pollinators. Fall bloom. Height: 12-36". Spread: 12-24".
> foxglove beardtongue
Penstemon (beardtongue) is well known for a tough-as-nails, grow-anywhere attitude. The flowers are sizeable compared to others in the genus, and the floral stems range in color from green to red. Great for native bees. Spring blooms. Height: 12-36". Spread: 14-18".
> butterfly milkweed
Beloved by hummingbirds, monarch butterflies, and gardeners alike, butterfly milkweed is best grown in poor, dry soils in full sun for that irresistible burst of life year after year. It is surprisingly tolerant of partial shade, but will emerge later there! Summer bloom. Height: 12-30". Spread: 12-24".
