Good Bug Blooms
A great mix for garden borders and beneficial bugs.
Sow this beneficial mix of annuals in the spring. There's always more to do in the garden than we can do alone, so why not invite some little friends to help out? The green lacewing on this pack will love these flowers and reward your generosity by laying eggs in your garden. The eggs will hatch into "aphid lions," their larval stage, which will voraciously devour insect pests. Get to know and love the good bugs in your garden by providing nectar and habitat for them to thrive.
Contains Indian Blanket, Dahlia Zinnia, Tall Blue Cornflower, Scarlet Flax, Sweet Alyssum, German Chamomile, Bright Lights Cosmos, and Persian Carpet Zinnia.
500 seeds sow a 3'x10' garden plot.
