Drought Tolerant Wildflower Seeds

Drought Tolerant Wildflower Seeds

Many gorgeous wildflowers tolerate dry spells with ease

Drought and dry weather is challenging for plants and gardeners alike - but it doesn't have to be. We carry well over 100 wildflower species and mixes that will hold their gorgeous color on strong, healthy plants even when the rain doesn't fall. We've found these varieties to be just as popular with gardeners who want to plant out of reach of a hose, as they are with those who live in true drought-stricken areas. For a diverse and beautiful planting, try our Xeriscape Mixes and Dry Area Mix; they contain some of the hardiest species we know of, designed to withstand long periods of time without water. All of the seed we carry at American Meadows is Non-GMO, Neonicotinoid-Free and Guaranteed to Grow.
