Default Pollinatorpalooza seed mix

I'm thinking about getting some of this from prairie moon this year.

Prairie Moon Nursery :: Seed Mixes :: Small Areas :: Pollinator-Palooza Seed Mix

"Prairie Moon is offering this new seed mix in cooperation with the "Bring Back the Pollinators" campaign of the non-profit Xerces Society. We'll donate 5% of profits from sales of this mix to Xerces in support of their important ongoing research and educational programs."

I like this statement from your their site:
Quote:
Research shows that inclusion of native plantings near agricultural crops greatly enhances crop yield, attracting native pollinators, improving ecosystems and lessening reliance on already-stressed European-introduced honeybees that annually are transported around the country to flowering crops. Pollinator-Palooza's blend of flowers and grasses will be equally appealing to humans and insects. We believe this mix will help enlighten everyone to the importance of pollinator habitat.
I will look through the species listed in the mix, pick out those that are appropriate to Pennsylvania, and then try to find local sources of local-ecotypes.
