Support the Grow Native! program and gain publicity and visibility

The native plant industry has demonstrated rapid growth in recent years. An ever-growing sector of consumers and professionals—including homeowners, farmers, and city planners—is making space for monarchs, pollinators, and songbirds in their landscapes with native plants. Natives also are increasingly being used to manage stormwater, improve water quality, curb erosion, reduce mowing, and even as a biofuel feedstock. Grow Native! drives demand for native plants via consumer and professional education and provides its sponsors with significant recognition.

Monarch CaféPollinator Buffet Monarch Café and Pollinator Buffet are a series of specialty plant tags to help market the ecological services of natives that are especially important to monarch butteries and many insect pollinators. The companion rack cards were designed to supplement these plant tags but can also be used as an educational tool to help gardeners and landscapers choose plants that benefit monarchs and other pollinators.
