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 seeding in the spring, you'll typically see the Indian Blanket, Plains Coreopsis and American Bellflower the first growing season.
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.
