Plant Information

Create a wildflower garden you'll enjoy for years with this premium mix. Just choose a sunny spot, remove existing growth, loosen or till the soil, and scatter the seed evenly. Then compress it into the bare earth; do not cover. (Walking over it does a good job.) Other than watering and one mowing after frost in the fall, that's it. All the rest is pleasure-a rainbow of color outside, and armloads of cut flowers all season long. You can plant in spring after frosts, during the summer, or in fall after growing season ends. Use this mix for meadow areas, borders, unused areas-anywhere you want a full season of full color. Color should begin the first year just a few weeks after sprouting; perennials return year after year with increased bloom.

Net Wt. 1 ounce is 65% inert matter as a sowing aid, 35% pure flower seed - over 10,000 seeds. All flowers below are included in the mix at 5% or less.

I love flowers. In fact, one reason I married my husband 34 years ago was because he showed up at my door with a beautiful bouquet to ask me out. Who could resist such sweetness ? A few years ago we bought a house that had a big yard with absolutely no flowers. We couldn't afford to buy individual plants from a nursery, so we looked online and found American Meadows. Over the years we've bought a lot of the mixtures and individual seeds and now I can't describe how beautiful the yard has become. I sprinkled the seeds everywhere and now we have beautiful surprises peeking out from places you'd never think of. Since the mix included perennials and hardy annuals I can count on the beauty returning year after year. There was no waste, no filler and no hassle. [...]

was unable to comment on all other items we bought but the same applies except we did have more daisies in the MidWest Wildflower mix than last year. Maybe our soil is junk but many things grow here. daisies, lilies, roses and rose of sharons do well but autumn beauty and most other seed does not seem to grow.

This is still a fabulous mix, except for the Ox- eye daisies. They are so invasive and are overrunning the meadow. They are illegal to plant in many states, so beware.

      Comments about American Meadows America's Favorite Wildflowers Jumbo Packet:

      Such variety and beauty. My wildflower meadow could not be as beautiful as it is without this, and I tell everyone where the seed came from. It's so much fun to see what comes up and what returns- this is the 2nd year I have used it, and the biennials are popping all over as well as the perennials.
      One thing I would rather not have in the packet is Evening Primrose. It is huge and terribly invasive.

            I bought some last year and the results were amazing...there were so many plants that the area I sowed looked like a flowering carpet. I can't wait to see what second year perennials show up this year. This is being done on an area that was a jungle of noxious weeds 3 years ago.

              I love wildflowers. They are so beautiful with the rich colors of orange, yellow, purple and blue. I love to watch the humming birds and butterflies dancing on the flowers. Excellent product and you will get good results. Very easy to spread, water and let the flowers do their job.

                              Q & A

                              Plant With These:

                              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
