Thanks for stopping by our table! We’re glad you’re here. That little orange envelope in your hand contains 15 - 20 square feet of native plants that pollinators of all stripes (or spots) will love. Each packet of Okies For Monarchs seed mix includes:
Goldenrod, Partridge Pea, Prairie Coneflower, Maximilian Sunflower, Plains Coreopsis, Illinois Bundleflower, Annual Sunflower, White Yarrow, Leadplant, White Prairie Clover, Indian Blanket, Verbena, Purple Coneflower, Swamp Milkweed, Butterfly Milkweed, Showy Milkweed, Common Milkweed, and Lemon Mint, subject to availability.
We encourage you to scatter your seeds in a bare or semi-bare area that will receive at least six hours of sunlight per day. The ideal time to do so is in fall or winter, as many native plants need to experience a few cycles of freeze and thaw in order to be ready to germinate in the spring. However, if you want to plant them at a different time, that's okay! Some varieties may not emerge until the following spring.
Ready to add more variety to your habitat? We get that a lot. Here's our handy 'What to Plant' guide, a free resource for pollinator people across the state.
