      Comments about American Meadows Native West Wildflower Seed Mix:

      I have had a difficult time finding a mix that would grow in my high altitude, shady yard. The wildflower mix provided a complex and beautiful display. It was not too irresistible for the deer and elk.

      I can't wait until next year to see how the garden wintered over.

      Comments about American Meadows Native West Wildflower Seed Mix:

      The seeds took well in several different Nevada climates, and as described they were safe for our alpacas. I asked what product would be safe and was given a very large well investigated amount of information from American Meadows. I wish that the alpacas would have let the plants grow so I could see them flower, but they keep them mowed down. I'll have to put a barrier up next year.

        Comments about American Meadows Native West Wildflower Seed Mix:

        This is the second year for my wildflowers, and with a young dog, some areas have been trampled. Others are so pretty with the different flowers growing profusely, that I am getting more seeds to do more areas and replant some old ones!
        I was just telling my son this morning that I need pictures of the flowers, they are so colorful and pretty!
