Empire State Honey Producers Association Native Wildflower Bee Mix Seed Packet

The Empire State Honey Producers Association was founded to promote and protect the interests of New York State beekeepers and to promote and assist in the efforts to preserve and protect the honey bee.

We’ve worked with the ESHPA on creating a wildflower mix perfect for those looking to provide foraging habitat for bees and other pollinators. This mix is crafted to bloom all season long.

Contains the following species:


Chamaecrista fasciculata – Partridge Pea

Heliopsis helianthoides – Ox Eye Sunflower

Echinacea purpurea – Purple Coneflower

Zizia aurea – Golden Alexanders

Gaillardia pulchella – Indian Blanket

Asclepias syriaca – Common Milkweed

Vernonia altissima – Tall Ironweed

The native perennials in your mix do require some patience to establish, but for instant gratification consider adding an ounce of any of these quick establishing annuals. They’re perfect pollinator plants, too!

Seed Packet contains 1 PLS (Pure Live Seed) oz. of seed which is enough to cover 250 square feet.

Detailed instructions on planting your seed packet are provided with your purchase.

This mix of native wildflowers typically grows to a height of 3 to 5 feet. Please note that each site is unique and that several factors can affect overall height. These factors include sunlight, hydrology and overall soil health.

We’ve partnered with the Empire State Honey Producers Association to bring you a native wildflower seed mix perfect for beekeepers and non-beekeepers.
