Wildflower Seed Mix to plant now.
Customers have asked for it, and here it is: A mixture specially formulated for late spring or summer planting. All you have to do is get it into the ground and be sure to keep it watered until the seedlings are about 10" tall. You'll have great bloom in just a few weeks, and it won't stop until frost.

The 49 quick and long-blooming annuals in the mix include Red Poppy, Cosmos, Cornflower, and Baby's Breath. The mix also includes Lance-Leaf Coreopsis, Sweet William, and Blue Flax for second year bloom. This is a mixture absolutely packed with color, and at these prices, it's so easy to fill in wherever you still need bloom for summer and fall--along walks, between perennials, in front of shrubs--anywhere--not to mention armloads of cut flowers all season long. Order, plant and enjoy!

This mixture contains 49 wildflowers, 38 annuals for first-year color, plus 11 perennials or biennials for second and successive years' bloom.

We are having a wedding June 20th in our yard and I planted the wildflowers along the fence line as a back drop for the wedding and reception. I was so worried about when to plant the seeds according to the package for germination and bloom time line. I followed the guidelines and they are PERFECT! Such a beautiful choice and we can cut them for the table centerpieces.

I had an area at the back of our yard that I was originally going to use as a vegetable garden. I had kept it covered with black plastic for over a year. I decided to use it as a "flower meadow" instead. I tilled and cleaned the area and applied the seeds as per instructions. I set up a sprinkler so it could be watered as needed. I weeded as needed. The results were underwhelming. I ended up few spindly flowers, and realized it wasn't going to work. Eventually the weeds took over, and at least they were full and healthy LOL.
Were I to do it again I would first plant a grass cover crop, install some paths and hardscape. Then I would start by creating small areas of wildflowers and let them get established and gradually expand the garden. I may still do that next year.

    Comments about American Meadows Summer Splash Wildflower Seed Mix:

    Worked well for erosion control on a steep hillside. Came up right away and that was planting in the middle of hot and humit summer with more than 8 hours of sun. It held pretty well when it could get moisture. Colorful. Easy to apply even though we were very steep. Due to heavy rains right away, it did not stick to tops of hills but that is to be expected. Would use it again

        Tried to fill some bare spots along a hill side. So far the results have been mixed. Partly because I seeded to densely. Hope to see the perennials growing next spring.

            Like the description said easy to grow. They basically take care of themselves, I only watered them if we had an extended period with no rain. Great colorful blooms that attract Butterflies and Bees. I will buy them again.

                        I sowed this in spring in a formerly grassed area which was tilled in preparation. The seed took awhile to germinate and I was afraid the resprouting grass would outcompete the flowers but I was wrong. The blooms are fantastic. I need to make it look maintained, like a garden, or my city ordinance enforcement officer will make me mow it, but the flowers came just in time. It's lovely right now. I will mow once the seedheads are ready to reseed for next year. Very happy with this mix!

                            Comments about American Meadows Summer Splash Wildflower Seed Mix:

                            My neighbors were impressed with this years show of flowers and have referred to my wildflower garden as "artistic" and "stunning". They have commented that "It offers me joy every time I look out the window".

                            After little success with a fall planting of the Midwest Wildflower Seed mix, (possibly from desperate birds and squirrels eating the seeds, likely from the sub zero winter we had) I ordered Summer Splash Mix in early spring to ensure all my work clearing the plot did not go to waste. This mix as well as the Fragrant Wildflower Seed Mix did not disappoint. Although I was not able to find each and every plant listed growing or blooming in my garden, those that were successful were abundant and put on quite a show for my neighbors.

                            My plot is small, and is located in a densely populated area, so there is a lot to consider as it has shade w/ wet dense soil, partial sun w/ arid soil that drains quickly, as well as a full sun plot with perfect soil. When I spread the seed mixes each area seems to have the right conditions for certain plants within the mix.

                            I must admit I did a considerable amount of weeding, hours an hours in fact, to eradicate my plot of easily identifiable common weeds. I did this in the fall, early spring, again to give new plants room to take root, and for a final time late summer. So for me it was not just a sprinkle the seed and let it grow affair. I am, however, hoping this effort will allow for the plants to establish themselves and grow even stronger the following year. The annuals will likely reseed, and I will have a strong, dense, wildflower garden for years to come.

                            Bottom Line: Although my garden is challenging, American Meadows high quality seed mixes resulted in a beautiful show of blooms, despite the less than perfect conditions my plot offers.

                            Bought a quarter pound to cover some drought afflicted areas here but ended up giving it to my niece in honor of her new baby. Her yard area is semi rural reclaimed farm land. She scattered the seed just before she delivered her baby. All during her leave from work while she cared for the newborn the wildflower mix took care of itself. She loved it and I am the new proud Great Uncle. I'll have to restock to fix up my urban area. I know where I'll be ordering my stuff.

                              I used the summer mix in an area of my lawn where I could not get grass to grow. It grew in big and beautiful with lots of splashes of color! We placed a couple layers of limestone rock around it and it looks awesome. Even my husband said he really likes the wildflowers! I did water it quite a bit in the beginning and we have had more rain than usual this year, so I can not atest to its drought tolerance. I have now ordered the fall mix and can't wait to see what surprises it holds. Thank you American Meadows!

                                I seeded late but the flowers bloomed right on schedule, 35 days, and continue to bloom to this day. Next year I will cover more areas with wild flowers. Very little maintenance and beautiful colors. The rabbits and deer have not touched them.

                                    I planted these this past summer after moving into a new home. The preparation was pretty labor intensive, but the final results were well worth it. Blooms of all colors. It seemed as if there was more orange in the summer and now it's predominantly pink/purple. I had a photographer leave a note at my house saying she had driven by and wanted to take some photos. I planted about 16 pounds of seed and the result gives me pleasure every time I look at it. I'm hoping that next year's growth is as nice as this first year.

                                        This was an impulse purchase, as we don't like to work hard to grow wildflowers in our yard, but just wanted some color late in the season. We tilled and planted and the rainy July took care of the rest. We had no idea what to expect so when some plants grew to 6 feet we thought they might be sunflowers. But they are bright orange (still, in October!) Smaller plants have bright yellow flowers and even smaller ones are a rainbow. Some have been knocked down by storms now, but there is way too much color to mow.
                                        We have no idea what we grew, but we're definitely ordering this mix again next year.

                                            I spread this seed late in the summer. While I put some water on them right away, I forgot about them. We are still in drought conditions so I didn't expect them to come up - but they did and I love walking out the door and seeing all the pretty color.

                                                I tilled up some very clayey VA soil and added lime and a lot of peat moss and some 10-10-10 fertilizer. I scattered the seeds by hand and followed the instructions with respect to watering until growth was of a certain height. Then I literally did nothing. The spot in my yard was sunny to partially shady depending on the time of day. Some of the plants grew to be almost 10 feet tall-- this species ended up predomiant in the bed but a few others also fought their way out. I would recommend this for anyone with a large empty bed who plants in early summer / late spring.

                                                      I always wanted to plant wild flowers. I found American Meadows and ordered several different varieties. I planted around my lamp pole,and around the base of my trees. They sprouted in about a week and there were flowers within three to four weeks. It is fun to see what will bloom the colors and flowers are wonderful

                                                        The garden club asked me to plant a vacant raised bed in late July! I ordered this mix and it arrived in a coupel o days. I planted in August and in a few short weeks the raised bed was completely filled with abundant colors!

                                                              I've ordered this flower mix for 3 years now. The first year gave us a variety of beautiful flowers and large blooms. The last two years have been disappointing, so I won't order it again. Only half of the seeds bloomed and they were of one variety.

                                                                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).
