Qty:

Blooming at low height, this mix forms a carpet that provides a wealth of color all season long. The low growing flowers are at a good height for children's viewing or for urban lawn replacement where the need may dictate a more manicured appearance. Most of the 25 species included in this mix are showy native species. This choice mixture contains both annuals and perennials--none of which grow taller than a few inches! Perfect for large scale meadow plantings, borders, or even as fill-in plantings throughout your garden. The flowers are very attractive to butterflies and they reseeds readily for year-after-year beauty. This mix of flowers will bloom from spring to fall, creating a different pattern as the season progresses. This mix of low growing flowers will do well in any good, well drained soil. They like to be in the sun for 8 hours a day. The flowers can be cultivated in about any region that does not suffer any extreme heat, and has average humidity and rain. Do not fertilize wildflowers unless the soil is extremely depleted of nutrients. Fertilizers encourage weed growth and lush foliage rather than flowers. If the soil needs improvement, we suggest adding organic matter such as weed-free grass clippings, well rotted compost or peat moss. The wild flowers need to be watered regularly during the summer to keep the plants at their peak. Like most flowers, this mix will do best in full sun, but it will perform in partial shade (at least 8 hours of sunlight per day preferred). To aid in natural reseeding and to keep a neat appearance, you can mow the flowers after they have gone to seed and lost their bloom. Mow them at a height of 4-6 inches-mowing below 3 inches could damage the perennial flowers.

Germination First remove existing vegetation to avoid competition from other plants. This may be done by pulling, tilling under, or spraying with a general herbicide. Next prepare the seed bed by raking the soil to a maximum of one inch. Shallow soil preparation will limit disturbance of dormant weed seed. After your ground is cleared and weed free, you will apply your seed. For small areas, broadcast the seed by hand. For larger areas we recommend using a carrier such as clean, dry sand to help in even distribution. Use a ratio of 2 parts sand to 1 part seed when broadcasting or using a drop or cyclone seeder. Lightly cover the seed no more than 1/4 of an inch by raking or dragging. All seeds, including wildflowers, need ample moisture to germinate and develop into healthy seedlings. Best results will be obtained by soaking the planted areas thoroughly and maintain consistent moisture for 4-6 weeks; then gradually reducing the watering. If you can't water, plant the seeds prior to rain season. Fall plantings should be done late enough so that the seeds do not germinate until spring. In mild climates, plant in the cooler months of the year, fall through spring. Early plantings should be done when warm spring weather and adequate rainfall will accelerate germination
and seed growth.
