A wildflower, by definition, refers to a flower growing in the wild without being tended to by people. As a steward of the environment, it's important for you to be informed that not all wildflowers are created equal.

Increased public awareness has paved the way for many seed outlets to market and sell "wildflowers". A substantial percentage of these "wildflower" species originate from Asia, Europe and places with much different ecosystems. These inexpensive mixes contain mostly annual species and some are considered troublesome weeds that actually displace our native vegetation.

OPN Seed's native wildflower seed is the "REAL DEAL". Our seed mixes include annual and perennial species, native to our region of the United States. They grew up here. They create habitat, support long-term sustainability and beautify landscapes. In short, they belong here! In the event that we include non-native species, it is done for a specific reason (low maintenance, early cover, etc.) and we indicate that they are introduced species.

Over the last 25 years, we have learned and taught a lot about native ecosystems. Our native seed mixes reflect this and we try our best to make ourselves available to answer questions about our products and how to use them. We encourage you to plant native species, to do the right thing and go with the "REAL DEAL", native seed from OPN Seed (Ohio Prairie Nursery).

Prairie ON!
