Most wildflowers native to the northeast are perennials. And the mixture includes some of the finest from New England Aster to Red Columbine to Butterfly Weed and Joe Pye Weed, all treasured species. This makes this mixture the perfect blend for homeowners who are serious about having a sun-drenched all-native meadow and are willing to invest not only the cost of this necessarily expensive mix, but also the time it will take until full bloom. But for the patient, serious meadow gardener, this mixture creates a particularly permanent and rewarding selection of hardy perennials that will increase over the years.
This premium mix includes 18 native wildflowers: 1 annual for first-year color, plus 17 perennials & biennials for second and successive years' bloom.

We have several acres in upper Bucks County in southeastern PA, not far from the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers. The garden zone is 6B, and we needed wildflower seed for a large area around a drainage basin. Our intent is to decrease the amount of lawn to be mowed, and to give habitat back to butterflies and birds.

We have a largish section of our acreage that I wanted to turn into a native wildflower meadow. I found American Meadow's mix after doing a Google search, and had a friend of mine, who is a wildlife biologist and former park ranger, check the list of included seeds to make sure that was I was getting was actually wildflowers native to my region (you probably wouldn't be shocked to know that lots of companies pass off exotics as "native"). He said that the plants included in the NE Wildflower mix were, in fact, natives, and so I bought a pound of seed. I followed the helpful and detailed instructions, and planted in the fall, using the sand-to-seed trick, and making a tamping board to insure proper soil contact.Then I waited. Waiting, it seems, is the moral of this story.This year was the first year. Anyone expecting three season, glorious color in year one is going to be disappointed. The main spring flower in the mix is lupine, which, as a perennial, will not bloom the first year from seed. So that meant my large space spent months and months looking like a weedy, abandoned lot. Yes, lots of things germinated, but none of them were first year spring color things.So I waited.By the beginning of July, however, my patience was rewarded with the arrival of the sweet coneflower, the black eyed susan, and the partridge pea (a new plant to me, and one I was immediately smitten with). I saw one-one!- brown eyed susan, one of each type of coreopsis, and a handful of indian blanket. So while I now have a lovely yellow wildflower scene, it is composed entirely of only three kinds of flowers. None of the milkweeds grew (not even first year foliage). No butterfly weed, no evening primroses, no aster.Which means I'll do what? I'll wait of course. What the garden shows me next year will be different from this year (which is why I'm puzzled by 4-star reviews from people who haven't even planted their mix yet), and while I hesitated even writing a first year review, I did so mostly to caution people that this garden is not for the impatient or faint of heart. It will take time and daring.This fall, I will overseed with the original mix again, but also order some aster and milkweed seeds, just to increase my chances of seeing them in future years. If nothing else, I'm being taught a lesson in patience.

First Season: Blanket of Gold
By Native Gardener :)

About Me Getting Started
Comments about American Meadows Native Northeast Wildflower Seed Mix:
Disclaimer: I mixed these seeds with some others that I purchased from a different site. I also miscalculated and planted WAY too much seed in one location - using almost the whole lot in about 100 square feet - so I'll be attempting to transplant a lot this fall. Process: We removed a row of sod 2 feet wide along our fence and sprinkled the seed with a tablespoon to get even coverage (I'm a little OCD about this stuff.) We watered regularly for the first month or so.Results: TONS of Partridge pea were the first to pop up, followed by an abundance of black eyed susans and a smatering of indian blanket. So far, these are the only blooms this season. While it's been a fantastic show, I'm really hoping to see more color variation next season! Fingers Crossed!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We disced up 3/4 of an acre many, many times to prepare for our native wildflower meadow. Seeds went in this past June and it's been beautiful ever since. Many flowers are taller than 6 foot Dave--pretty amazing. We'll mow when everything is dried and dead and hope for a repeat next summer. Lots of birds and bees and turkeys and deer patrolling through. I am hoping to provide a habitat for bob whites that I used to hear in my youth.

As good as gold!

A wildlife sanctuary in your own backyard! I'm looking forward to more varieties of butterflies and birds visiting the garden next year. I found out that some kind of animal -- not sure whether it's a deer or raccoon or other critter -- loves the Evening primrose -- and so I found out that there are edible flowers in this garden!

Flowers DID NOT grow
from Mt Laurel, NJ
These flowers did not grow at all. I might have had a few of the yellow flowers pop up after a couple of months but that was it. Nothing at all like the picture. This ended up being a waste of money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

not that great
from skaneateles new york
most of the seeds did not germinate at all. I am left with a row of dirt and hardly any palnts. I planted the seeds in the fall and followed all instructions. Disappointment is my closest friend.

Once the area was preped all these seeds required was an occasional weeding at the start. I have color in areas where nothing else seemed to grow with little effort. I plan to order more for my difficult areas next season.Lazy

Lots of yellow so far.
By North Street Gardener
from Montpelier, Vermont
It took a couple of months for the first flowers to appear. I sowed the same day that I tilled but still had to weed every few days to keep down the competition. Now, three months from sowing, I have a healthy patch of rudbeckia with a smattering of a few other species. I'm hoping I'll have more variety next year. I like the fact that the brown-eyed susan is doing so well.

Too early to say for this year.
from arnold MD
The seeds came up last year fine, and I had blossoms. I have a lot come up this year, one variety in particular, but no blooms because its early yet. I'll know more in another few weeks.

I can't wait for spring!
from Fairfield County Connecticut
I ordered these seeds for early winter planting. They've been in the ground getting their time of chilliness and moisture. As soon as the weather warms up, they should be popping their little leaves right out of the dirt! I can't wait to see my nasty dirty muddy bare yard transformed into a glorious meadow of all-native New England wildflowers!
I have used this mix in a sunny, woodland border and it has turned out great. The mix offers native species which I try to plant whenever possible as I live next to a conservation area.
