Description

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.  Now you can have a beautiful, unique blend of wildflowers that will offer a sense of natural wildflower beauty and locally adapted native plant authenticity in your landscape.

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 do want to augment this blend with a low growing native grass.  In these circumstances we recommend our Sheep fescue native grass.  Sheep fescue is a low-growing native grass that establishes quickly, helps fill in the gaps between wildflowers and because it is a short growing grass, it won’t hide the beauty of the natural wildflowers.  Sheep fescue is a great compliment to this wildflower blend.  We recommend buying about a quarter of a pound of sheep fescue for every 1000 sqft (0.5 lbs) of wildflower mix.
