Provide refuge for pollinators!

    Why do flowers come in so many colors? One theory is that the colors attract pollinators. But insects, including solitary bees, honey bees, butterflies, wasps, and flies, don’t see color the same way we do. Their compound eyes can detect most of the colors we can—but they also see UV light, invisible to humans. To their eyes, every beautiful bloom is a veritable bullseye, a combination of visible and UV light patterns that guide them toward sustaining nectar, thus continuing the cycle of life.

    Includes New England Aster, Plains Coreopsis, Penstemon, Indian Blanket, Evening Primrose, Wild Bergamot, Milkweed, and Ohio Spiderwort.

    Art Seed Packets: Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
