After a few years of great success with the NorthEast wildflower mix, I decided to try this low-grow variety. I found that so many of the flowers grew so tall and would eventually break, but the mixture worked like a charm and I covered a lot of area with it. So, unfortunately, I tried something different... The low grow mix sprouted and grew just like the other, but I have not seen a single flower. I planted a pound, but it just looks like a vast area of green weeds. Wondering what was so different...?

    I use the low grow annual wild flowers in and around a meadow area to add color. Flowers attract a lot of birds, butterflies, and bees. The results are spectacular with the right prep and watering.

        Placed the seeds, along with my favorite (5 spot) in seed balls and tossed them into an old wheelbarrow. Germinated fairly quickly and produced a lovely display of wildflowers! Not all germinated, but enough to make it a favorite spot in my garden.

          I believe this product could work well. I followed the directions on the package but am only getting maybe a quarter of the seeds to grow. It seems that all the white flowers are doing well but there is little color. I do like that they don't need a lot of water. I live in Nevada so it's hot and dry. Might try this mix again next year.

                Wonderful seed. We were moving out of state and put wildflower seed and zinnia down before we left. I made sure to rake the area and tamp the seed in. We weren't there to take care of it, but an automated watering system helped create an amazing effect. The beautiful result of masses of flowers is what sold our house after only a few showings! Thank you!!!!

                  We bought this mixture last August in a desperate attempt to grow color quickly in our meadow after a particulary hot and dry summer. We own an event facility so it is important to our guests to have blooming flowers for photo opportunities.
                  The flowers started to bloom right before the frost, but mostly just a stand of baby's breath. However, in mid april of this year--we were so surprised to see a beautiful array of flowers in mostly red clover, bachelor's buttons and baby's breath with a few yellow poppies. I think it was the earliest we have ever had wildflowers in bloom. We are going to plant this mix again in early August this year and see what happens!

                      Because I just bought and scattered these seeds this past Fall, I can't really give a review on performance as of yet. However, there are a multitude of seedlings coming up which I trust will be beautiful blooms in a few more weeks. What I can tell you is that I have used American Meadows seeds in the past and enjoyed beautiful color. I have used the drought tolerant mix, the Southeast mix and the wildlife habitat mix. Because I am growing wildflowers in a neighborhood and can't have my yard looking unkempt after the flowers have died back, I have sometimes had to mow/weedeat the flowers before the proper time. By doing this, I have sacrificed some seed that should have been dropped in the fall, and would have given me more color (from the annuals) the next Spring. So, in addition to the perennials which come back, I have supplemented with annual seeds (but not every year) to assure a nice round of color and enjoyment for ourselves and our neighbors.

                            I've been buying American Meadows' seed for over 3 years now. I've tried other, less expensive Wildflower seed, without much success. American Meadows has the best. It's fresh, easy, & brightens your day when you see the flowers blooming all over the place. I'm a busy teacher & have little time to fool around in the garden. I like quick & simple gardening projects. Just throw the seed down or put it where you want flowers, water, & watch them grow.

                              Comments about American Meadows Low Grow Wildflower Seed Mix:

                              A good low growing mix. Alot of mixes can get 5 feet high so try this if you are unsure. It is still 3ft on some plants! :)

                              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).

                              Find Your Planting Zone:
