Plant Information

The “Elegant Clarkia” or “Farewell-to-Spring” is a favorite wildflower in the wild in Northern California. With red or maroon stems, the flowers resemble pinkish powder puffs up and down the tall plant. In the northeast, these lovely meadow annuals reach about 12 to 14” in height, but with the moist conditions of the Pacific Northwest (and even well-watered in Southern California) this clarkia can reach 3 to 4 feet for a magnificent show. All clarkias are named for Captain Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. For related species, see godetia, C. amoena.
*Sometimes known as C. elegans.

    Comments about American Meadows Farewell to Spring Seeds:

    I planted American Meadows' annual wildflower mix last year in an area that was about 25' x 15'. It has southern exposure and receives full sun. It is in the Colorado Mtns at an elevation of about 8500'. This is a short growing season. Farewell to Spring was the first flower to bloom in June and it kept on blooming for several months. I had no idea what it was and had to look it up on this website. It was beautiful with the blue cornflower and white annual gypsophilia. It was planted again this year, at the end of April, and covered with a landscape frost protection blanket until June 1. The birds didn't get the seeds, and I'll have far more blooms of everything this year, including Farewell to Spring. Also, the deer, chipmunks and rabbits seem to leave this flower alone. I love it.

    No blooms

    By 

    from Princeton, NJ

    About Me Avid Gardener

    Comments about American Meadows Farewell to Spring Seeds:

    Didn't see any blooms from these. I cleared an area of our land in Princeton, NJ to plant a broad mix of wildflower seeds from American Meadows: Cosmos Dwarf Mix plus nearly all the varieties carried by American Meadows that were said to grow well in part-sun. Of all these, only Cosmos Dwarf Mix and Sulphur cosmos dwarf lemon thrived. The area previously had heavy tree cover though now is half-sun, clay ground, fairly wet. The few poppies that bloomed were so beautiful, I'll try those again next year as well.

    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).
