Bees and Butterflies General Information

The Bees and Butterflies Collection offers colorful nectar and pollen sources from late spring to late summer. For good health and sufficient resistance, a varied menu is very important. These collections provide a menu with four varieties to sustain our beneficial pollinators and extend the garden season with blooming bulbs. *Please note: We are not permitted to ship Alliums to Idaho or the Washington counties of Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant or Klickitat. All our accent annuals are guaranteed to reach you in good condition and to grow, but we can't guarantee annuals to overwinter. Will be an annual except in zones 8-10 but can be stored over the winter in colder zones. Instructions

Bees and Butterflies Plant Care

Hardy in zones 8-10. Cut foliage when foliage has declined after the first fall frost. Place in a dry, frost-free place over winter. A paper or cloth bag, onion bag or nylon pantyhose works well. They may also be stored in single layers in cardboard boxes with newspaper between layers on on screens.
