Makes a great gift! New to natives? We’ve got you covered! The popular natives in the Beginner's Seed Packet Collection are easy to germinate and tend to once established. In addition to being some of our most approachable species, these plants provide an abundance of nectar, pollen and habitat for imperiled pollinators.

The Beginner's Collection includes 6 species, 1 seed packets of each:

Purple Prairie Clover (Dalea purpurea) - 750 seeds
Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) - 300 seeds
Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa) - 500 seeds
Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) - 1,000 seeds
Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) - 500 seeds
Smooth Blue Aster (Symphyotrichum laeve) - 750 seeds

For a naturalized look, combine all seed packets to cover approximately 30-40 sq ft. Surface sow outdoors early spring or late fall on a weed-free site. Mow the first growing season. Expect first blooms in year 2. Alternatively, sow seed in rows in a garden setting early spring or late fall. Thin seedlings and weed as expected with vegetable gardening. Transplant to permanent location that fall or the following spring.
