Our regular Southeast Mix is well-suited to most of this region down to the Orlando area, but further south and right on the Gulf Coast, particularly if you are usually frost-free, this mixture should do better for you. It's a custom blend of Southern favorites plus some additional species that are geared for frost-free or light frost areas. Like the southeast mix, it offers quick color with annuals such as pink and orange cosmos plus plains coreopsis, the official state wildflower of Florida. However, this mix also gives you lovely blue pimpernel, lemon mint, scarlet sage, and four o'clock, all hot weather wildflowers. The perennials in the mix include favorites like perennial coreopsis and gaillardia, plus the treasured pink showy evening primrose from Texas and moss verbena. This mix should give you great color the first year, plus strong bloom from perennials in years thereafter. Fall is the time to plant in South Florida, and fall or spring on the Gulf Coast.
This mixture contains 18 wildflowers, 14 annuals for first-year color and reseeding, plus 4 more perennials or biennials for increasing second and successive years' bloom. See full flower list below.
