More Information

The colors in bloom will vary at different times of the year, and depending on how much water and sunlight are available to the wildflowers.  The colors which you will see at different times of the year will include:  yellows, purples, reds, oranges, pinks and whites.

The actual composition of wildflower wildflowers will vary from season to season and from year to year, but generally you will receive the following wildflowers in each order of this blend:

  • Mexican Poppy
  • Arizona poppy
  • Blanket flower
  • Tidy tips
  • Desert lupine
  • Arroyo Lupine
  • California Bluebells
  • Desert senna
  • Firecracker penstemon
  • Desert marigold
  • Hooker's Evening Primrose
  • Desert daisy
  • Brittlebush
  • Arizona Lupine

This blend will make a great addition to any area of your landscape that you want to enhance the color with wildflowers that are not commonly found in typical store-bought seed mixes.  Many of the seeds in this blend have been hand-harvested from the wild and, until now, have only been available to professional and commercial buyers.

This blend has been a real favorite for sprucing up the color in areas such as:

  • Open fields
  • Cabin sites
  • Next to walk-ways
  • Flower gardens
  • Window boxes
  • Hillsides and other sloped areas
  • Any area with partial to full sun and available moisture (rainfall or irrigation).

This wildflower blend contains no grasses and no fillers.  We pride ourselves on our professional-grade wildflower seeds. Many of our customers may want to partner this blend with a low-growing grass. In these circumstances we recommend sheep fescue. Sheep fescue is a low-growing grass that establishes quickly, helping fill in gaps between wildflowers and creating a meadow-like look. Because it's a short growing bunchgrass, it won’t hide the beauty of the wildflowers. Sheep fescue is a great compliment to this wildflower blend.  We recommend buying about a half pound of sheep fescue for every 2000 sq.ft (1 lb.) of wildflower mix. This amount may be increased or decreased depending on your desired ratio of wildflowers to grass.
