This mixture of annual and perennial wildflowers, known to perform well in California's Central Valley, provides a bright and colorful array of flowers through spring. Fall planting results in an earlier and longer blooming period. Spring planting can be successful with supplemental irrigation. These seeds have low water requirements and may be sown alone or in conjunction with selected grasses.
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, reds, yellows, whites, 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:
White yarrow, Achillea millefolium
Farewell-to-Spring, Clarkia amoena
California Poppy, Eschscholzia californic
Globe Gilia, Gilia capitata
Scarlet Flax, Linum grandiflorum
Blue Flax, Linum lewisii
Sweet Alyssum, Lobularia maritima
Arroyo Lupine, Lupinus succulentus
Five Spot, Nemophila maculata
Baby Blue-Eyes, Nemophila menziesii
Flanders Poppy, Papaver rhoeas
California Bluebell, Phacelia campanularia
Black-Eyed Susan, Rudbeckia hirta
Yellow Owl’s Clover, Orthocarpus luteus
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-ways
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.
