Description
Who says you cant have color in the shade? With this special mixture of shade-tolerant flowers, you can. Close to buildings, under high branches, at the edge of the lawn-anyplace that's too shady for a regular flower garden, but has some sun each day-at least four hours. And what a garden it is-20 different flowers in a rainbow of hues. And bloom begins just a few weeks after planting. Annuals bloom your first year, perennials the second-and then return each season with more and more blooms.

How to Plant your Shady Garden: Plant in spring after frosts, during summer, or in fall after growing season ends. Clear area of all existing growth, and till or loosen soil. Then scatter seed mix evenly and compress soil. Do not cover. Water carefully, and keep moist until seedlings are about 10" tall. Annuals bloom first year; perennials and biennials the second and successive years, forming larger and larger clumps.

Flowers Included: Net Wt. 1 ounce is 65% inert matter as a sowing aid, and 35% flower seed. Over 10,000 seeds in all. The following flowers are included at 5% or less:
Chinese Forget-Me-Not, Baby's Breath (Gyp. elegans), Multicolored cornflower, Siberian Wallflower, Dame's Rocket, Rose Mallow, Four O'Clock, Gloriosa Daisy, Evening Primrose, Chinese Houses, Lanceleaf Coreopsis, Sweet William, Foxglove, Purple Echinacea, California Poppy, Baby Snapdragon, Scarlet Flax, Baby Blue Eyes, Red Poppy Mix, None-so-Pretty.

    Comments about American Meadows Shady Flower Garden Jumbo Packet:

    I used this seed mixture in California and Colorado in areas heavily shaded by large trees. I had a very good crop of colorful flowers where i had trouble growing much else. The good thing was that it didn't require much work on my part.

      Comments about American Meadows Shady Flower Garden Jumbo Packet:

      I sprinkled some seeds in a lrg pot on my front porch and then spread the rest in a shady location in the back yard, Both germinated in 3 days and the flowers in bloom were so pretty in the shade.
