Why Plant Butterfly Flowers?
Butterflies play a crucial roll in maintaining our ecosystems. They help grow numerous plants by pollination. Over the past few years we’ve seen an extreme decline in the amount of butterflies. Almost 75% of the plants we eat are because of pollinators.
There are a few things you can do to help save the butterfly population, but one thing you can do right now is order a FREE seed packet to plant in your garden.
How You Can Help Save Butterflies & Bees
Whether on the picturesque beaches of Hawaii or in the dense forests of the Rockies, pollinators such as bees and butterflies, play a crucial role in maintaining and improving our ecosystems. They help to grow the plants that we eat every single day, are vital parts of the natural food-chain, and serve as ecosystem barometers due to their sensitivity to climate change.
In the past 5 years, bee and butterfly have declined remarkably. Saving these creatures is imperative to humankind since approximately 75% of the fruits, vegetables, and nuts we eat are courtesy of pollinators. Bees and butterflies also beautify our planet; their important role in plant reproduction perpetuates floral growth and provide aesthetically pleasing landscapes for human enjoyment and faunal habitat.
Due to the importance of pollinators in our changing climate, we are taking the initiative to help restore bee and butterfly populations by offering free Black-Eyed Susan and Butterfly Milkweed seed packs.
What’s the deal?
You can choose between Butterfly Milkweed and Black-Eyed Susan. Milkweed is the only plant the larva will eat and lay its eggs in. Without it, butterflies would not exist. Black-eyed Susans attract many pollinators. They are brightly colored and the flower head hold 250-500 individual flowers, so there’s a lot of pollen to go around!
