  • In year two, you’ll see biennials bloom and the first blooms of your perennials.
  • In year three and beyond, you will see colorful perennial wildflowers bloom.

Notes On Native Wildflowers

More and more people are becoming passionate about growing native wildflowers and native plants to support wildlife habitat in their yards. Resilient native plants are beautiful, adaptable, and connected to your local wild landscape.

Is growing native wildflowers a goal for you? If so, a great place to start is with our exclusive Native Regional Wildflower Seed Mixes, which are an easy, affordable way to grow a mix of wildflowers that are native to your region of the United States. 

You can also select from our wide range of native wildflower seed species, including rare and hard-to-find species. We also offer a wide range of native perennial plants, including woodland wildflowers, shrubs, and ornamental grasses, and native grass seeds

Remember, you can use our Plant Advantages "Native" filter to find wildflowers & plants native to North America when shopping anywhere on our site.

It is important to note, however, that just because a wildflower is not native, does not mean that it is invasive or harmful.

Wildflowers that are introduced, or not native, to the United States, can also offer a host of benefits for your yard. 

For example, introduced wildflowers can provide an important nectar and pollen source for honeybees, which are also a species that was introduced, not native to the United States. Without sufficient flowers, honeybees can outcompete native pollinators. Studies show that growing abundant and diverse flowers that provide plenty of nectar and pollen sources for pollinators will increase pollinator population and diversity in your area.
