Eastern Pollinator Plus


The Eastern Pollinator Plus was designed to meet the PFQF High Quality Habitat Standard and provide excellent cover for upland wildlife and pollinators. It includes native species appropriate for the Eastern US.  It was not designed to meet any state NRCS standard. Customers who are participating in a Federal Conservation Program like CP42 must instead purchase one of the state specific mixes designed to meet the appropriate standard.
