Monarch Special Kit

Who doesn’t love seeing Monarch Butterflies? Now you can turn your backyard into a Monarch sanctuary. The Monarch Special Kit is designed to create the perfect environment for our orange and black winged friends. With milkweed species for the caterpillars to feast on and other blooming species for nectar, they won’t be able to resist. More than just for butterflies, you will enjoy a variety of colorful blooms, as well. Best planted in dry to mesic soil with plenty of sunlight any anywhere you want to see Monarch Butterflies.


Rusty Patched Bumble Bee Kit

MNL has partnered with the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources and the Lawns to Legumes program to design pollinator gardens to help create habitat for the endangered Rusty Patched Bumble Bee. Each species is listed as a “superfood” by the MnBWSR.  Best planted in dry to mesic soils with plenty of sunlight.


Short & Tidy Kit

Perfect for small or preexisting ornamental flowerbeds, the Short and Tidy Kit is designed with compact species that don’t mind staying in one spot. This collection will provide Spring and Summer blooms in a wide range of colors while providing habitat for all types of pollinators, insects, and butterflies. With the short stature of these plants, consider using as an accent under a mailbox, near a flagpole, under a post and rail fence, or even in front of your home.  Best planted in mesic soils with plenty of sunlight.


Wetland/Rain Garden Kit

Full of gorgeous wetland wildflowers, turn wet areas into a beautiful Rain Garden. Designed perfectly for smaller, contained runoff areas or low lying areas of your yard with moist soils. Enjoy bright and vibrant blossoms throughout the growing season. Expect to attract a wide variety of insects and pollinators to your rain garden, including Monarch Butterflies!  Consider planting at the edge of parking lots, driveways, and any other areas with concentrated runoff or in low lying areas. Best planted in heavy soils with high moisture and plenty of sunlight.


Part Shade/Woodland Edge Kit

The Part Shade/Woodland Edge Kit is specifically designed to strive in the transition spaces between open and wooded areas.  These plants will strive in both direct sunlight as well as shade.  A fantastic, natural habitat for many pollinators and insects. Consider planting on the border between wooded and open areas or at the wooded edge of your yard to reduce maintenance around those trees that are hard to mow under. Best planted in dry to mesic soil.

Backyard Prairie Kit

Bring a touch of wild, native Minnesota prairie to your home with the Backyard Prairie Kit.  Taller growing species than you’ll find in the Short & Tidy Kit, this kit designed to be planted in smaller, contained areas with room to reach for the sky.  This kit is perfect for back yards in town or urban settings. Expect flowers throughout the Summer and even into the Fall. The Backyard Prairie Kit will create habitat to attract all varieties of pollinators, as well as butterflies and songbirds too! Consider planting in small, contained areas of your yard with full sunlight or partial shade without height limitations.
