The latest scientific research has revealed that native plants, not Old World (non-native) species, provide essential food for butterfly and moth caterpillars that birds collect to feed their chicks. Very recent studies by University of Delaware's Prof. Doug Tallamy, in conjunction with the National Wildlife Federation, have revealed that certain natives are better than others for this purpose.
Now, we can all pitch in to help the songbirds raise their families and beautify our properties with hardy, low care native plants. This Native Songbird Garden for the Pacific Northwest contains one each of Santa Fe Maximilian's Sunflower (Helianthus), Desert Snow Mock Orange (Philadelphus), Crandall's Clove Scented Currant (Ribes), Fernbush (Chamaebatiaria), and 2 each of Kannah Creek Sulphur Buckwheat, Major Wheeler Honeysuckle Vine, and Orange Carpet® Creeping Hummingbird Trumpet (Zauschneria) for a total of ten plants.
The plants in this garden are cold hardy in USDA zones 5-9. (Note: we reserve the right to substitute another regionally suitable plant should any of the listed varieties be unavailable.) Each Native Songbird Pre-Planned Garden comes with planting diagrams and maintenance instructions for proper placement and plant care. This garden collection covers an area from 105 to 115 sq. ft. in size.
