    I can't grow grass. It is just a fact, one which I am totally fine with because I don't like it much anyway. Plus I am more of a low maintenance kind of girl myself. So one of the first things that I did when I bought my house was pull out every hedge that I could and tear up all the grass. I love being out in the woods when I can so I knew that I wanted to bring a little bit of that into my "neck of the woods" so I decided to plant a meadow for a yard. I also had a pretty good slop in my front yard so that area would get a little bit dry. Plus it gets dry here in the summer anyway so I wanted something that was kind of drought tolerant. Being the fourth generation Oregon girl I am I went with the Native Pacific Northwest mix. Even though I live in Southern Oregon, which is considered part of the Pacific Northwest, we technically don't get as much rain as up North. So I knew right away that many of the varieties of seed that were in the Pacific Northwest mix wouldn't grow down here in our Mediterranean type climate with little to no supplemental water. I tried to seed in the fall, but the wild turkeys that roam my neighborhood made quick work of that. So in the spring when they were all sitting on their nests I tried it again. Success!!! And my yard has been the talk of the neighborhood ever since. The one thing that I have had an issue with is some parts of my yard had more shade than I realized so things grew but didn't bloom to well. I just look at it as a learning experience so next year I am going to plant a partial shade mix there instead. I have a bunch of people that I know who are now going to do meadow yards instead of grass. All my neighbors either have brown yards, or green yards with extremely high water bills, or both. Mine on the other hand is green and lush and full of color and my water bill has went up very little since the winter, mainly because of my vegetable garden. The other added bonus is that it has brought in a ton of bees so my vegetable garden in going crazy. One thing that I would encourage you to do is familiarize yourself with what the common weeds look like in your area. Even though I had let my yard die and sit there with just dirt for two seasons I still had weeds coming up when I started planting my seeds. Now I am having a battle with the crab grass, but the nice thing is that it just blends in with the flowers so to be honest it is too bad. I plan on making that my fall/ winter project since we have wet but mild winters here. I am excited to see what happens next year, and so are my neighbors.

    I bought the following packages of seeds for my Monarch Waystation:

    Pacific Northwest Wildflower Seed Mix - 1/4 LB
    California Central Valley Wildflower Seed Mix - 1/4 LB
    Butterfly & Hummingbird Wildflower Seed Mix - 1/2 LB

    Either one or all of these were full of Persicaria maculosa which is an awful weed that has taken over my waystation. It spreads like crazy and is choking out all of my existing plants. I pull out hundreds every time I go out to the wildflower garden but it spreads back in just a day or 2. I will have to wait for the growing season to be over and try to roundup it all. Sad that all these years of established plants will need to be re-planted.

        Comments about American Meadows Native Pacific Northwest Wildflower Seed Mix:

        Included the mix in a native garden area for primarily annuals. Several new to me species appeared including Chinese Houses and a new Clarkia. However, no tidy tips are present now although several species have not begun to bloom. Because we had little rain this year, I used occasional supplementary water.

              I used this mix in garden beds where I have had little success growing much else. The variety of colors was wonderful, and the flowers attracted bees and butterflies. A great way to introduce children to gardening.

                I ordered this winter of 2011 to prep an area for orchard trees. Before it was compacted dirt that the previous owners had parked an RV on. It germinated quickly and bloomed as soon as it go warm (June 1st or so). The bees loved it. Sadly I did not get to see everything bloom, as we had to dig up the area and install a new water pipe. But the flowers were so nice that I'm ordering again and hope it will germinate and bloom quickly now that it's warm.

                  I threw out the entire pkg in my parkway, It is just a blaze of color. Many passers-by have complemented me on my blast of colors in the front. They rally bring a happy feeling when I glance out and see them swaying in the wind. I really made a great choice

                        We transformed a grassy area into an entire summer of changing color and fragrance by covering the grass with cardboard and compost. We sprinkled on the NW native wildflower mix, and the entire area came to life - the flowers attracted pollinators, butterflies and even birds. It was beautiful, and we had tons of compliments from people stopping by to comment. We did absolultely no maintenance, until the following spring when we cleaned up the dried annuals. AMAZING.

                          Nice to see native plants and hoped they would choke out the vigorous "quack grass" . It planted in to replace an old RV driveway next to my house. The grass prevailed but I do have some nice perennials from the mix, lupines and shasta type daisy.
