Our Chaparral Sage Scrub mix is custom designed and native to California (see distribution map). This mix includes grasses, flowers, and shrubs for revegetation of soil and slopes with plant types that belong to California. There is a quick start grass to protect soil and allow slower perennials permanent cover in the years to come. Designed as a non-irrigated mix, irrigation will foster establishment and prolong the blooming period. This mix has been designed with an emphasis on native wildflowers and with special attention to balanced percentages of annuals and perennials. It is appropriate for chaparral scrub restoration throughout California.
The colors in bloom will vary at different times of the year, and 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 species will vary from season to season and from year to year, but generally you will receive the following species in each order of this mix:
Acmispon glaber: Deerweed
Artemisia californica: California sagebrush
Encelia farinosa: Brittlebush
Eriogonum fasciculatum: California buckwheat
Eschscholzia californica: California poppy
Festuca microstachys: Small fescue
Hesperoyucca whipplei: Our lord's candle

This mix will make a great addition to any area of your landscape that you want to enhance the color with species 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 scrub mix contains no fillers. We pride ourselves on our professional-grade seeds.
