    Comments about American Meadows Bird's Eyes Seeds:

    This showed up in a wildflower mix and I was not familiar with this particular flower. It came as a lovely surprise peeking out through the California poppies and added a cooling contrast to all the hot colors in the wildflower mix. It did well in the heat of our desert "spring" (more like summer in other zones). I will plant more Gilia tricolor this next Fall.

      Comments about American Meadows Bird's Eyes Seeds:

      I love sowing favorite wildflower seeds where I plant my spring bulbs. As soon as the daffodil show is over I look forward to the display of flowers. The Gilia tricolor is a favorite from my childhood. I had not seen it in any garden since. It makes a lovely display without turning into an invasive weed. Its lovely colors fascinate visitors to our home.
