Product description

Because of the small beak sizes, songbirds can’t handle large seeds. Small seed heads are ideal for them. That is why the native blanket flowers and purple coneflowers are well received by songbirds. One more dish can be added to songbirds’ lunch menu: the cup plant. Cup plants relentlessly produce flowers and seeds that are great for bees, butterflies and birds.

The cups on the plants can be a natural bird bath for birds. Toads and frogs sometimes find refuge in the cups as well. Cup plant is truly a nature reserve for water and nutrients.
