This is a spectacular, flowering mix of both natives, and naturalizing species. With the Pacific Northwest's wonderful climate for growing wildflowers, this mix has proven itself year after year to flourish and provide beautiful color from spring to fall. The mix includes approximately 27 easy to grow species of annuals, perennials and biennials. Many varieties will live over or reseed ensuring a permanent wildflower garden of your own. A real, year-round adventure, as the different varieties come into bloom. Hardiness zones: 5-8 (-26°C/-15°F, -10°C/15°F) in winter. The climate of the Pacific Northwest is a wet coastal climate, with abundant winter rains, dry summers, and mild temperatures year-round. Temperatures are usually above freezing in winter. The summer average temperatures are: 66-70°F (19-21°C) at night and 86-90°F (30-32°C) during the day. 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.
