Our Ornamental Low Growing Native seed mix is custom designed and native to a wide variety of zones throughout California (see distribution map). This mixture is a blend of showy, low growing annuals and perennials species that will provide months of bright Spring color in a non-irrigated setting, or year-round color when irrigated. This mix may be used alone or in conjunction with grass and shrub seeds.
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 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:
Achillea millefolium: Yarrow
Acmispon glaber: Deerweed
Camissoniopsis cheiranthifolia: Beach evening primrose
Clarkia bottae: Punch-bowl godetia
Collinsia heterophylla: Chinese houses
Eschscholzia californica: California poppy
Festuca microstachys: Small fescue
Lasthenia californica: Dwarf goldfields
Layia platyglossa: Tidy tips
Lupinus bicolor: Bicolor lupine
Lupinus nanus: Sky lupine
Mimulus aurantiacus longiflorus: Sticky monkeyflower
Mimulus aurantiacus puniceus: Mission red monkeyflower
Muhlenbergia microsperma: Littleseed muhly
Nemophila maculate: Five spot
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, as well as legumes. 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).
