The Manitoba Mix produced by Skinner Native Seeds was developed through a collaboration with The Xerces Society of Invertebrate Conservation and consists of approximately 40 varieties of local native wildflowers, either grown or hand-collected locally, that attract and support pollinators. It will provide bloom from early spring to late fall, from prairie crocus to many-flowered aster. It includes 5 species of local native bunch grass for a variety of habitat for bumble bees and other beneficial insects. This mix is appropriate for habitat restoration throughout the mixed grass prairies of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, as well as northern North Dakota and Montana.
