Covering approximately 100 square feet, our Diverse Perennial Wildflower Seed Packet is just that, a mix of perennial species that thrive in full sun and will add interest to your existing prairie or help you create a one of a kind garden. Bloom times range from late spring to early fall for continuous color throughout the growing season.
Some things to remember:
These are native perennial wildflowers. Once established, they will come back every year. It will take 2-3 growing seasons for these species to fully mature.
Seeding in the late fall or winter is recommended so these seeds can go through their cold, moist stratification process. You can read more about stratification here.
If you are adding these seeds to an existing planting, it is important to get good seed to soil contact and plant them in areas where they will get enough light and moisture to germinate.
There are no annuals in this packet. If If you'd like to add some color while the perennial species are establishing, consider adding our Fast Flowering Seed Packet.
