Make your yard into a beautiful monarch and pollinator habitat!

This flat of 36 native monarch-friendly plants is for orders within Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Illinois, eastern Nebraska, and a selection of zip codes in Michigan (49801, 49802, 49858, 49870, 49876, 49938). You can check to see if you live in an area where these plants can be shipped here: Plant Shipping Zones (Zip Code List)

If you’re looking to create beautiful, native habitat that can strive in areas of partial to majority shade, filtered sunlight, or limited hours of direct sunlight, this kit has you covered. Expect blossoms early in the year with more arriving as Summer and Fall roll around. The Part Shade Garden Kit will provide an ideal environment for many varieties of insects and pollinators.  Don’t be surprised if you see a hummingbird or two!

Consider planting under mature trees, on the north facing side of taller buildings, and anywhere else with limited direct sunlight or a combination of sun and shade.

Each kit covers a 40-60 square foot area. Best to plant in a sunny area.

Check out the MJV Guide on Creating Healthy Pollinator Habitat in the Midwest HERE for guidance.

Awesome, Again!

This is the second plant set that I've ordered from the Monarch Joint Venture Store (the first one being the milkweed set). Both have been ideal online plant-purchasing experiences. The plants look gorgeous and healthy when they arrived, and are doing great in my wildlife garden! I highly recommend these plants and this store!
