I sprinkled 1lb. of this seed mix around my garden when autumn rains arrived in 2011. I started to see a tinge of growth even through winter and a little snow in Southern Arizona, 30 minutes north of Tucson. Then a HUGE explosion of endless flowers and colors every single day, lots of blues and hot pinks too, in spring through early summer. It is dry here so I water my garden every morning early. You can see the flowers on my site, but I am not allowed to link to it here. Also, the list that American Meadows provides with all the names of the flower seeds in the bag, allowed me to identify all the flowers I did not recognize. Great all around!

If I had 1/10th of what the photos show I would have been happier with the product. I tried regional, shade and wild flower mixes. Lots of alyssum, few Nasturtiums, one Four O'clock, one sunflower in red, few daisy type, few low growing pink and blue flowers. The majority are tall 15-18" plants but no buds nor flowers to identify them. My city did not appreciate all of the effort to make a flower meadow. There was a good suggestion about posting photos with the seed names to make identification easier.

    Comments about American Meadows Fall Maximum Wildflower Seed Mix:

    I used a seed spreader and walked around our slope. I just walked on the seeds and started watering. We got a good rain storm afterwards. It is still winter in California and the flowers are growing so fast. They are beautiful! I can see the flowers from my kitchen window. Excellent product and so easy to spread.

              I was going to spread the seed before the first snow cover, but was unable to put it down and we had snow cover all winter here in the northeast. I have bird feeders so birds frequent my yard. In the spring, I decided to spread the seed densely to combat the bird population. Apparently, they were not interested in this seed and I have a green carpet growing. I may have to thin it out, but so far, very hearty.

                Many sprouts, many plants, many not yet mature enough to bloom, but all seem healthy and are filling in the area just the way I wanted. In time, this should be an attractive wildflower garden.

                Comments about American Meadows Fall Maximum Wildflower Seed Mix:

                After 18 years of trying (and mostly failing) to grow flowers from seed in Vermont, we now live in Pennsylvania and I decided to try this mix again in my new location. I am absolutely blown away. This mix gives, gives, gives, all summer long and now into fall. And the varieties! I had to look half of them up. I've never seen a nicer wildflower garden, throughout the season, than from this mix. Every day (OK, sometimes more than once a day), I've said to myself, "I've got to tell American Meadows how happy and amazed I am" so here it is. If the mix doesn't work for you (as it didn't for me all those years), it's not the mix! It's your conditions (soil, sun, etc.).

                  I sowed my seed last year in the fall just as directed... I cleaned up my beds - 2 of about 5'x10'each - and spread the seed. I eagerly awaited spring to see what would come up. The first to pop up were Bachelor Buttons... and there were a LOT. There were a few other things that came up that were very pretty as well. Unfortunately, my landlady informed in Febuary that I had to move in June. :( So I was unable to see the other flowers left to arrive. I had mostly pink and purple - mostly bachelor buttons and a few splashes of red for spring. I believe this is a great product. Follow the directions - you won't see the flowers in the fall, but in the spring. This product covered a 10'x20' area nicely. Hope to do it again.

                        The seeds took longer than expected to germinate, but once the mix got going, it seemed to be well designed. The small, low white flowers come first, filling the area planted. Then some low verigated blossoms appear, along with some different and taller whites. Then, like fourth-of-July fireworks, the large, tall reds, purples, blues and yellows burst forth. The area is still developing, and new blossoms appear almost daily. I am very happy with these seeds.

                        Comments about American Meadows Fall Maximum Wildflower Seed Mix:

                        I've used this mix several years. I usually sow the seed in the late winter or early spring. This year we had a prediction of a foot of snow, and I put the seeds out just before that storm hit, and the results are very good. It may be just my garden, but I get a lot of phlox. I'd like to see fewer phlox seeds and more of the others.

                          I have used various wild flower mixes from American Meadows on a hill behind my house. I am constantly amazed and delighted by the various blooms that result. Last year we had a drought in my area and while others watched their gardens burn up my wildflowers just kept right on going strong.

                              I bought an iron gazebo and encircled the gazebo with my wild flower mix. It was great planting in the fall and being the first in the neighborhood to have flowers growing and blooming in early spring.

                                I needed a fast, reliable fill in for a large bare spot. I thought something to fill up space before I put perennial bed with in. So the story is I HAVE NOT PUT ONE PERENNIAL IN. It filled in so nicely and was gorgeous! Butterflies galore and Hummingbirds too. I am so happy with this mix that I am going to get another bed ready so I can do another. If you stuck with me to the end of this slight ramble-bottom line is this mix will not disappoint!

                                    I am developing a pre-settlement prairie with a large amount of flowers....this mix, of annuals and perennials, gives color in the first year as well as more to come with the perennials in the next and following years. I'm thrilled with the results so far....last year in spite of a horrible drought the seeds that didn't come up laid dorment and are coming this year....I have many flowers this year (as I write this, looking out at it...a veritable sea of white with blue and orange and red "splotches"....beautiful!)

                                        Tilled up the grown where I wanted these to grow last fall. Planted an entire bag during suggested fall planting time. This spring, added another entire bag to the area that was tilled. Have had almost none of the seeds sprout. Very disappointed.

                                              I went out with a list of the species this mix contains and a wildflower photo guide to identify which species my soil, moisture and sunshine actually favor, and then I ordered those individual species' seeds for the following season. Surprising, what was favored.

                                              I was quite disappointed in this product. I planted in early November of last year. We got a fair amount of rain and I watered when it didn't rain for more than a week. I planted in disturbed soil that I wanted to stabilize and have some color. Some native grasses came up and about a dozen wild flowers. I had four blossoms total. I have used other brands of wildflower seeds and did quite well, but this didn't work.

                                                I sprinkled 1lb. of this seed mix around my garden when autumn rains arrived in 2011. I started to see a tinge of growth even through winter and a little snow in Southern Arizona, 30 minutes north of Tucson. Then a HUGE explosion of endless flowers and colors every single day, lots of blues and hot pinks too, in spring through early summer. It is dry here so I water my garden every morning early. You can see the flowers on my site, but I am not allowed to link to it here. Also, the list that American Meadows provides with all the names of the flower seeds in the bag, allowed me to identify all the flowers I did not recognize. Great all around!

                                                  We purchased 2 pounds to package up in envelopes as favors at our wedding. I'm excited to plant the extra when we have a house this fall!

                                                      I bought this mix in the fall to fill in a partially sunny gentle slope, after I removed endless English ivy, poison ivy and weeds. The soil is clay and quite rocky, and I didn't do any amending. I did rake and try to scratch up the top inch of ground, though. Now it is April 2, and the seeds have definitely started coming up. I already have a few flowers- delicate small white, pink and fuschia blooms (not sure what they are yet). Other plants are still short and foliage only. My main problem seems to be crowding in some areas, and no coverage in other areas. This may be due to rains, wind, or the weirdness of our DC winter. So I have begun transplanting some of the seedlings into less crowded spots. So far so good- they are still alive (I did amend these new areas with compost to help things along). I may write another review in a few months once I see how things turn out. But overall, I'm happy. One improvement I would like to see to the website is hyperlinks for each flower mentioned in the mix, so I can easily click on the name and see an image. Right now I've had to put each name into a separate browser window, and it's a pain for a mix with this much variety.

                                                        This seed mix was very reliable and worth the money. I am already seeing sprouts after a week. I also bought seed mixes from different companies who ripped me off with having 95% other material and 5% seed. American Meadows sent 100% seed and I was greatful for that! Will always buy from here!

                                                        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).
