Designed for the hot, humid summers and mild winters of areas like eastern Texas, Louisiana, central and southern Mississippi, central and southern Alabama, central and southern Georgia, northern and central Florida, central and eastern South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina, our Southern Subtropics honey bee pasture blend will provide maximum nectar and pollen amounts throughout the growing season. This clover-heavy blend contains a large percentage of legumes as well as wildflower species preferred by the honey bee and other beneficial pollinators. It also includes perennial and self-seeding annual species for multi-year productivity, and can be used as a green-manure cover crop. Great for both professional beekeepers and hobbyists.
