On this page we list the ingredients in our Butterfly Blend Wildflower Seeds mix. This blend was selected based on flowers that are particularly rich in nectar, and ones that naturally occur in North America, along butterfly migration routes. The benefit of planting wildflower mixes is that they greatly increase biodiversity wherever they are planted, and they have been shown to have a measurable positive impact on pollinator populations.
