Our California Coastal Native Wildflower seed mix is custom designed and native to the coastal areas of California (see distribution map). We thoughtfully selected wildflowers that are appropriate to this area and that provide a variety of bold and delicate blossoms; with both early and late blooming wildflowers for color through the growing season. This mix has been designed with an emphasis on native wildflowers and with special attention to balanced percentages of annuals and perennials.
The colors in bloom will vary at different times of the year, 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: blues, purples, pinks, reds, yellows, and oranges.
The actual composition of 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 mix:
Camissoniopsis cheiranthifolia: Beach evening primrose
Clarkia amoena semi-dwarf: Farewell-to-spring
Clarkia unguiculata: Mountain garland
Collinsia heterophylla: Chinese houses
Eschscholzia californica: California poppy
Gilia capitata: Globe gilia
Gilia tricolor: Birds eye
Lasthenia californica: Dwarf goldfields
Layia platyglossa: Tidy tips
Lupinus microcarpus Ed Gedling: Ed Gedling’s golden lupine
Lupinus nanus: Sky lupine
Lupinus succulentus: Arroyo lupine
Mimulus aurantiacus aurantiacus: Sticky monkeyflower
Nemophila menziesii: Baby blue eyes
Penstemon spectabilis: Showy penstemon
Sisyrinchium bellum: Blue eyed grass
This mix 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 mix 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 mix of wildflowers that will offer a sense of natural wildflower beauty and locally adapted native plant authenticity in your landscape.
This mix has been a real favorite for sprucing up the color in areas such as:
Next to walk-way
Hillsides and other sloped areas
Any area with partial to full sun and available moisture (rainfall or irrigation).
This wildflower mix contains no grasses and no fillers. We pride ourselves on our professional-grade wildflower seeds. In these circumstances, we recommend our California Habitat Mix. Our California Habitat Mix is a low-growing grass mix that establishes quickly, helping fill in gaps between wildflowers and creating a meadow-like look. Because most of the varieties included in this mix are short-growing bunchgrasses, they won’t hide the beauty of the wildflowers. Our California Habitat Mix is a great complement to this wildflower mix. We recommend buying about a half pound of our California Habitat Mix for every 2000 ft² (1 lb.) of wildflower mix. This amount may be increased or decreased depending on your desired ratio of wildflowers to grass.
