Our Alternative Lawn Wildflower Seed Mix features a mix of 13 clover, grasses, and low-growing wildflowers to create a flowering lawn with sprays of subtle color. Understated groundcover plants are low-maintenance and a great choice for stabilizing sloped or uneven areas. Unlike traditional grass lawns, wildflowers support pollinators, and only need to be mowed once per season. This easy-to-grow blend features quick-blooming annuals and hearty perennials. Our 100% pure, non-GMO, and neonicotinoid-free seeds are guaranteed to grow.
