Our Southwest Transitional Pollinator Mix has been designed to provide optimum pollinator habitat throughout the drier areas of southern and central Utah, central Nevada and parts of the Four Corners states. It contains some of the most valuable plants for bees, butterflies, birds, moths and other animal pollinators, and will provide an excellent nectar and pollen source during each season of the year. This mix contains both perennial and self-seeding annual species for multi-year productivity. A special emphasis has been placed on providing habitat for the struggling monarch butterfly – a majestic insect that relies solely on milkweed as a food source.
