Bees - Butterflies - Birds

Douglass King Seeds has designed a Texas Native Seed Mix for pollinators that will provide food for caterpillars of butterflies and moths, provide nectar for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, and provide seeds for songbirds.

This mix will create a small native habitat in your very yard. You will be able to enjoy blooms from March until Thanksgiving and watch as many species of birds and bugs use your garden oasis.

Give it a Monarch Boost! Add a packet of Mariposa Zizotes Milkweed to spread with your pollinator mix to add one more butterfly species that can benefit from your garden!

This graph shows when each species in this mix will bloom, and whether birds, bees, or butterflies benefit from it. The butterflies are listed by how many species of butterfly use the plant as a larval host, which means where they will lay their eggs. For example, 27 different species of butterflies will lay their eggs on bluebonnets. Butterflies are very specific as to where they will lay their eggs. Details on which species prefer the plants came from The National Wildlife Federations Native Plant Index, The Audubon Society, BeeSponsible, and the Native Plant Network.
