The Wildflowers of the Midwest

America's heartland is a combination of the ecosystems of the Great Plains and parts of the grand deciduous forests that extend into the northeast and mid-Atlantic states. Long known as the "breadbasket" of the world, the American midwest is the greatest agricultural region on the planet, and its rich soils and growing conditions make it a wonderful place to garden with wild flowers.


Optimum planting times for the region are mid-March to mid-May in spring, although you can plant as late as mid-June. Fall planting in October and November is also successful in all but the coldest regions.


Our Proven Wildflower Seeds Mixture for the Midwest is one of our richest mixes of native and naturalized flower seeds, featuring the world-famous wildflowers from the plains regions, such as Purple Coneflower, Blue Flax and Black-eyed Susan. Our All-Native Mix for the Midwest is a premium blend of even more wildflower species native to the region.


Over the last 25 years, we have helped literally millions of wildflower gardeners in the Midwest establish wildflower meadows they will enjoy for years.

The Safe Seed Pledge

"Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy, sell or trade genetically engineered seeds or plants.


The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities."
