This mix contains annual wildflower seeds that can be added to other native seed mixes to give your native plant garden color and foraging for pollinators during the first growing season while your native plants are getting established.
Sow the ONPM Fast Flowering Annual Cover Mix at the same time as the ONPM Short Pollinator Garden Seed Mix. These annual wildflower species act as a cover crop and typically germinate and flower in the same growing season and these species will not impact the perennial wildflowers during the establishment phase.
This mix can also be seeded alone to create a colorful annual wildflower garden.
Contains the following species:
Chamaecrista fasciculata - Partridge Pea
Cosmos bipinnatus - Cosmos (Introduced)
Centaurea cyanus - Cornflower (Introduced)
Gaillardia pulchella - Indian Blanket
Coreopsis tinctoria - Plains Coreopsis
Monarda citriodora - Lemon Mint
