After battling with a shady backyard riddled with plants of questionable rapport, I decided to give the entire problem area a facelift.

I simply covered everything (everything) with a layer of newspaper, covered it with organic garden soil, threw seed everywhere, stomped it all in all nice-like, and hoped for the best. In the beginning, it took a lot of watering for what seemed like little to no payoff. Growth was slow, but steady, and I started worrying.

That is, until everything started shooting up like crazy when the soil warmed. First up we're Five Spot and Baby Blue Eyes. Tiny little things that satiated me until the Snapdragons and Chinese houses took off everywhere! Now, I'm patiently waiting the bloom of so many more, and currently unidentifiable, wildflowers.

My small backyard went from zero to hero, birds and squirrels love it, and I've seen less unsavory pests in my yard, since! This is turning out to be a lovely adventure with wildflowers, as the journey brings me a sense of reward (watching them grow) and new color to what was once a troublesome experience.

American Meadows has done it. I keep coming back for more varieties and will continue to do so for a very long time.

I agree with my nearby Newton,NJ reviewer.Planted total of three pounds-pound on three separate occasions. Fall planting-no growth. Spring planting-minimal response. Third attempt in progress. Possible variables:too little sun; winter storm soil erosion;resemblance to weeds; poor soil quality. Planted as ground cover between hostas and hydrangeas,which was a mistake-looked terrible. Current attempt is in isolated area where only PS seed is planted. Some minor progress-being patient.

Comments about American Meadows Partial Shade Wildflower Seed Mix:

I had purchased this for the more shady area of my yard I seeded and waited. Maybe the deer or other pests got the seedlings but I never even saw sprouts. Next order I will try Deer Resistant and see if I have any luck with those.

    Comments about American Meadows Partial Shade Wildflower Seed Mix:

    I did an experiment last year. I planted some of these wildflowers in a location that gets more than four hours of sunlight a day and some in a location that gets dappled sunlight. They did outstanding in the area that gets at least four hour of sunlight a day and did poorly in the woodsy, dappled sunlight. But I loved them so much in the area where they did well that I ordered some more for this year. They have a strong "red, white, and blue" presence and also have some orange. I just loved them. They lasted for three seasons and didn't require maintenance -- although I have to say, our rain conditions were pretty optimal last year.

      Comments about American Meadows Partial Shade Wildflower Seed Mix:

      Extremely fast service. We have purchased a lot this year to work on erosion control on steep hills. Becuase we had a limited amount of time to plant in the summer this year, it was hard to tell if we could have had even more wilflowers if we had been able to plant iin the spring. Maybe it will do even better in 2016

        Comments about American Meadows Partial Shade Wildflower Seed Mix:

        I used this product to fill in a large area in which all ground covers that I used proved to be too labor intense, sensitive to light conditions and ground conditions. I also wanted something that would provide some privacy. My only negative comment would be that the taller plants fell into the walk way with heavy rain falls so the walking path between the planted area and my pond became hazardous and needed to be cleared. Just a task that I didn't enjoy doing.

            Planted this mix on a newly graded dirt roadside next to my driveway. Because the new road material that the town used was only gravel, I augmented the gravel with commercial compost. Broadcast the seed in the late spring. Because this was on a fairly steep bank, I covered the seed very lightly with landscaping straw in order to protect the seed from heavy rains. Well, it all came together very nicely. Lots of flowers by early summer and still blooming beautifily. This spot only gets about 3-4 hours of sun a day.

                  I didn't have time to plant my usual vegetable garden this year so I decided to sow wild flowers instead. This is such an easy way to create a low maintenance area of incredible beauty. My wild flower meadow is a constantly changing rainbow of color throughout the season and it is filled with bees, butterflies, and dragonflies adding yet another dimension.

                        Left with very rocky ground,not real top soil, after replacing my septic tank I tried the wildflower partial shade mix. (It is in partial shade) I planted as per instructions. They grew at a reasonable rate and once started quietly blossoming, small ones at first, they haven't stopped and have gotten bigger and brighter;wonderful collors, an absolute delight!
                        I absolutely highly reccomend anyone to do the same.ol

                            I used this product to canvas an area that is roughly 20 ft. x 40 ft. Partial shade. The area was cleared, turned over, and fertilized before planting. The growth was weak, slow, and only a few of the flowers bloomed. I have been very disappointed.

                            Ensure that you add sufficient sand to thin out seed before spreading. Do not spread too thick. As you can see from my photo, I spread a little too thick.

                            Where are my wildflowers?

                            Exactly 2 months ago, I carefully followed the planting instructions for the partial shade wildflower mix. I've been watering the entire area regularly. The seeds spread like wildfire, completely blanketing the area. However, the entire landscape is completely green, with the exception of 3 small flowers that I just notice a few days ago.

                            I'm disappointed that after 2 months my neighbors think that I planted groundcover.

                              I tried seeds from another company first and not one flower germinated. The partial shade wildflower mix was spectacular. Lots of colors, long bloom time and zero maintenance. I will order the mix again. It's late October and there are still flowers in bloom in my garden.

                              I was bored with grass and its maintenance. I landscaped my front yard with a beautiful desert tree and plants to compliment the look. After my landscaping ideas in the front and the many compliments I received, I decided I'd plan out the backyard. I visualized a small meadow. I have a Palo Verde tree that shades my yard but wanted wild flowers anyway. I searched the internet and discovered this site. I'm the winner now because I have colorful wild flowers with low maintenance and low water needs. I'm proud to show off my landscaping talent.

                              After tending to my soil quality, I dispersed the seed as directed. Through spring, I had a lovely bloom of small, low-growing annuals. The remainder of growth, which seems spotty, has been echinacea foliage. I do look forward to those, next year. But in truth, I only saw 5 annuals bloom; all of which ceased when summer warmth hit. I won't say I'm disappointed, but I do believe that my conditions will tolerate only a limited variety of what is provided in the seed mix. I've decided to buy only the varieties that did well and to be grateful that I rid myself of most of the grass, Mosquitos, and slugs.

                                  Enjoyed spreading the seed with my girls near a wooded area in the yard in t spring. Within a week or so the seeding began to sprout and had blooms by early summer.

                                      I used this seed to bring color into an area that we had cleared out in our front lawn. Years of pine needles had killed off all greenery in the area so we removed them all and tested the soil for acidity. With the "good soil' verdict we spread out our seeds and cared for them according to the package. At the end of the summer we only had green leaves with a couple flowers that grew about 4" tall.
                                      We are hoping that they will come back full force next year, perhaps they just needed the extra time to establish themselves in our soil.
                                      Here's hoping!

                                        Comments about American Meadows Partial Shade Wildflower Seed Mix:

                                        After battling with a shady backyard riddled with plants of questionable rapport, I decided to give the entire problem area a facelift.

                                        I simply covered everything (everything) with a layer of newspaper, covered it with organic garden soil, threw seed everywhere, stomped it all in all nice-like, and hoped for the best. In the beginning, it took a lot of watering for what seemed like little to no payoff. Growth was slow, but steady, and I started worrying.

                                        That is, until everything started shooting up like crazy when the soil warmed. First up we're Five Spot and Baby Blue Eyes. Tiny little things that satiated me until the Snapdragons and Chinese houses took off everywhere! Now, I'm patiently waiting the bloom of so many more, and currently unidentifiable, wildflowers.

                                        My small backyard went from zero to hero, birds and squirrels love it, and I've seen less unsavory pests in my yard, since! This is turning out to be a lovely adventure with wildflowers, as the journey brings me a sense of reward (watching them grow) and new color to what was once a troublesome experience.

                                        American Meadows has done it. I keep coming back for more varieties and will continue to do so for a very long time.

                                        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).
