I've put this down every few years since we built our house in the mountains of West Virginia - fairly steep lot, no lawn. I put seed down in January after it seems to have lost some of the variety. Use in two areas that we use a brush hog on in the fall, to keep meadow. Great results, no care, lots of compliments. Every plant I've put in on the property is native.

Tampa Bay, FL, zone 9b
I used this seed in a natural meadow area. I started the area with plant material from nurseries in addition to throwing down this seed mix (and some seed from other sources). Most species didn't grow, probably becuase of the environment, not to any fault of the mix. I have since preferred to order seeds by species which have proven to do well in this area. If you're starting out or looking to expand your southeast meadow, this mix is a good idea to see what works. Once you see what grows, I recommend buying those species invididually in greater quantities.

Comments about American Meadows Native Southeast Wildflower Seed Mix:

We put in a large area of the back yard mixed with other seeds like we did when we did this in Chicago... but ..... perhaps not enough sun as it only gets half sun and half shade depending on time of day. Certainly not a great experience but I am willing to take the blame....

    Comments about American Meadows Native Southeast Wildflower Seed Mix:

    This mix is more perennials than annuals and since this is the first year I planted them I can really on comment on the first year's growth. BLACK EYED SUSAN'S EVERYWHERE is all I have to say. Okay, the plains coreopsis and indian blanket grew in okay, too. The red phlox only bloomed a bit. I love them but I did expect some more variety. I really love the way the plains coreopsis and black eyed susan's look when they grow close together. Hopefully, next year when the perennials come up there will be some more colors mixed in. I'm glad I also bought the beneficial bug mix and all annual mix for more variety and color, in the first year. Seriously, LOTS of yellow in my meadow!

      Used this variety pack to fill in area in side yard which is steeply sloped, has lots of rocks, and has one 80lb hound, one 35lb mixed breed and one 16lb terrier running around it. Did I forget to mention I live in the mountains?
      These seeds came up quickly and are beautiful. They solved a problem I have had since I moved to this area.
      Just watching the wind play with the flowers is mesmerizing!

      BEWARE of Scarlet Sage! Invasive.

      Comments about American Meadows Native Southeast Wildflower Seed Mix:

      Added this mix and another mix that included scarlet sage to S.E. mix. Everything started out beautiful, until scarlet sage took over so fast I could not pull it out fast enough. Destroyed entire meadow, unless you want just scarlet sage. Prolific seeder and spreader. Trampled everything. Starting over from bare soil and I still have scarlet sage seedlings coming up! Pulling them out every two weeks, but again, cannot get a handle on their control. Bad plant! Google it and it's also known as butterfly pest.

          This seed mix was much more reliable and worth the money. 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!

            Comments about American Meadows Native Southeast Wildflower Seed Mix:

            I used the roll-in method as described on the site: Get rid of all existing growth, mix seeds with sand and scatter, then roll in with a rolling water drum. (This last step is crucial - if you omit it, they will not grow!)

            It wasn't long before I had a thriving stand of gorgeous wildflowers. This is the second year, and they came back like gangbusters.

            You have to get out there early and remove competing weeds, but you don't have to remove all of them -- just the large aggressive ones. Other than that, there is no maintenance.

            I do think they should remove the partridge pea from the mix, however, since it tends to be invasive, so for folks with non-wild flower beds, it can be a huge headache.

              Good mix of annuals and perennials, so you get the annuals blooming the first year and then the perennials fill in the next year. It's great to have a regional native plant mix available -- that's hard to find. The wildflower garden looked great, even in the middle of a drought! I like having a wildflower bed back there because it's pretty, attracts birds and butterflies, and means less mowing.

              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).
