Help pollinators by adding these plants in your landscape.

Diversify your garden!

Like dinner guests, different pollinators have different tastes: offer a buffet that has something for everyone. Mix up flower color, shape and scents, and watch the butterflies and bees enjoy! Our custom mix of annuals and perennials contains: Cheiranthus allionii (Siberian Wallflower), Cynoglossum amabile (Forget-Me-Not), Callistephus chinensis (China Aster, Single Mix), Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower), Linum perenne (Blue Flax), Coreposis lanceolata (Lance Leaved Coreopsis), Gaillardia pulchella (Indian Blanket), Papaver rhoeas (Corn Poppy Mix), Ocimum basillicum (Sweet Basil), Reseda odorata (Sweet Mignonette), Phacelia tanacetifolia (Lacy Phacelia), Rudbeckia amplexicaulis (Clasping Coneflower), Rudbeckia hirta (Black-eyed Susan), Ratibida columnifera (Mexican Hat), Oenothera biennis (Evening Primrose), Coreopsis tinctoria (Plains Coreopsis), Aster novae-angliae (New England Aster), and Monarda fistulosa (Bergamot).

Life Cycle This refers to whether a plant is an annual, biennial or perennial. Annuals complete their life cycles in one year; biennials produce foliage the first year and bloom and go to seed the second year; perennials can live for more than two years.


Sow Method This refers to whether the seed should be sown early indoors and the seedlings transplanted outside later, or if the seed should be sown directly in the garden at the recommended planting time.

Growing Calendar Not Available
  • Direct sow seeds in average soil in full sun after danger of heavy frost.
  • Sow in ordinary or poor garden soil. In Deep South, Gulf and Pacific Coast areas, sow from fall to early spring.
  • Sow seeds thinly and cover with ¼ inch of soil.
  • Firm soil lightly and keep evenly moist.
  • Seedlings will emerge in 10-15 days.
  • Thin seedlings to 16 inches apart when seedlings are 1-2 inches tall.
  • Keep soil evenly moist but not wet.
  • Deadhead the plants regularly to keep them blooming continuously.
  • If your calendula plants die out due to hot summer weather, cut them back hard and water. They will start growing again when cooler weather returns.
  • Plants can self-sow, so allow some to set seeds.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • Remove plants after they are killed by heavy frost in fall to avoid disease issues the following year.
  • Calendula performs best in areas with relatively cool summers, but can grow anywhere.
  • Plant calendula in an herb garden or in containers to add a splash of color, or plant them with both annuals and perennials in flower beds and borders.
  • Taller varieties make beautiful cut flowers and nice additions to dried arrangements. For fresh arrangements, cut the flowers when they are about half open. To dry, hang them in small bunches upside down in a warm, dry place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $10 I ever spent! I had cleared a bed along my very long driveway last year. I put down wet newspaper, brown paper, and cardboard and covered it with free city compost. I sowed the seeds around April 1 and planted a few marigold plants. The seeds took off like crazy. There quite a few varieties and colors, and they are about four feet tall and covered with bees and butterflies all day long. The plants did not grow like the seeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So beautiful! Not only excellent for pollination - My husband deliberately planted some along our walkways - to greet me as I come home from work - It's beauty erases any negativity of the day. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprising There is still much preparation to do, but I wanted to try this mix. There's a tree stump in the yard rotting well and I sowed a few seeds into it. Not where I can see it much, I checked on it a few times but left it alone. Today, I checked again. Some dieback occurred as it's dried out here, but the most pretty small blue 'trumpet' flowers have bloomed with more budding! Next season I hopefully will have some beds prepared to plant more, and I hope to get hummingbird flowers sown or planted, then I KNOW I'll have fun when the neighbors make comments like they already have this season. Growing flowers is something I always wanted to do, and now being retired I have time. I'll be looking for more seed and/or plants for next spring, you betcha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This wildflower mix is beautiful and so easy to plant! Just broadcast seed, gently take it with your hands in the soil, and I covered mine with mulch. It came up evenly and so beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flowers All Summer Long I also received free seeds with my 2016 spring Burpee order and they were incredibly prolific and beautiful until the frost got them in late-November. Used last years seeds for this year so we'll see how they do. Please keep these around!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally fun I got 2 packs of these for free after ordering some raspberries and hellabors from Burpee. I indifferently scattered them in my parking-strip and the hill behind my house. There were numerous beautiful flowers that came up, bees friend, bachelor buttons, calendulas etc. Totally easy to grow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope Very disappointed. Did not have any blooms/plants all summer. Have about five flowers now. We prepped the space and watered. Followed instructions.
