The world-famous wildflowers of the Southwest are brought together to assure a wonderful native meadow from the Pacific coast inland through the deserts. Native annuals in the mix include two species of lupine, Indian Blanket, Desert Marigold, Blazing Star, Farewell to Spring, and more. Perennials include California poppy, of course, and Mexican Gold Poppy too, plus red Mexican Hat and two Evening Primroses, the yellow and the famous pink. Sow as rainy season begins in mild areas; in the mountains, after spring frosts.
