This Kit Includes

  • Buddleia x ‘Pugster Amethyst’ (Pugster® Amethyst Butterfly Bush) This diminutive butterfly magnet recalls the well-known namesake gem in its rich, multi-toned purple hues. The cone-shaped flowers bloom for months, sending butterflies to seek out its nectar. Best for full sun and tolerant of dry conditions, try these in your low-water gardenscapes.
  • Ilex crenata ‘Soft Touch’ (Soft Touch Japanese Holly) A great boxwood substitute, this acid loving, evergreen shrub grows in neat little mounds. Black fruits are attractive to birds but require a male and female plant to produce. This plant is also host to specialist, cellophane bee, (Colletes banksi). more info
  • Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii ‘Goldsturm’ (Goldsturm Black-Eyed Susan) Bred from a North American native, this cultivated wildflower is one of the easiest, most long-lasting flowers to grow. Named for the German phrase “golden storm”, its rich yellow rays surround a dark, contrasting central disk (Susan’s blackened eye). Bees and butterflies may dine on its nectar but the real ecological benefit comes later as a winter seed-feeder for birds; including chickadees, cardinals, goldfinches, nuthatches, and sparrows. more info
  • Salvia x sylvestris ‘May Night’ (May Night wood sage) Another mint family favorite, this aromatic herb is well suited for the leading edge of a dry garden where it can attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds en masse. Also known as ‘Mainacht’, this early summer bloomer exhibits rich, fuzzy, violet-blue spikes alongside the catmints, yarrows, and early daylilies. This plant can be deadheaded to intersecting branches for repeat blooms with moderate effort or cut down to basal growth for rejuvenation.
