Our Western Low-Water Use Pollinator Mix has been designed to provide optimum pollinator habitat in areas throughout the West that receive 12 inches of annual precipitation or less. It contains some of the most water efficient, drought tolerant 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. This mix produces a stand that will contain approximately:
12% Sainfoin, Onobrychis viciifolia
