Give the gift of seeds this Valentine’s Day! Audubon’s carefully selected seed varieties will grow into a summer-long bouquet that attracts monarchs and other butterflies.

ACNC’s Monarch Mix is made up of plants that thrive in full to partial sun. Each set of seeds includes separate envelopes of purple coneflower, lance-leafed coreopsis, swamp milkweed, blue vervain, and Mexican sunflower. The Mexican sunflowers (an annual plant) will bloom throughout the first summer and fall to attract migrating monarchs while the other native perennials will take a year or so to become fully established and bloom.

All of these seeds flourish in regular soil types and all of the perennials are found in Audubon’s native garden in front of the Nature Center. Your purchase of seeds through Audubon helps to introduce more monarch habitats to the area while supporting Audubon’s mission to connect people to nature.
