Fall is a great time to plant perennials in our region – the cooler nights and temperate days help to reduce transplant shock. These plants grow well in outdoor gardens in local conditions, including full sun and clay soil. These flowering perennial plants come in 4” recyclable pots.

Each pack includes: 

  • 6 pollinator-friendly plants native to Colorado 
  • 1 3 oz bottle of honey made by Butterfly Pavilion bees
  • 1 Pollinator Garden Guide written by Horticulture Director, Amy Yarger
