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.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

What's in this Mix?

(3” - 24” tall) Our ‘Alternative Lawn Wildflower Seed Mix’ is a versatile blend of plants that will develop into a lawn filled with texture and natural beauty. If you have uneven terrain or a steep hillside, or if you simply like the idea of mowing less, our Alternative Lawn Wildflower Mix is the perfect lawn replacement. This mix is composed of 13 plant varieties: 6 annual wildflowers, including Poppy and Sweet Alyssum, will bring pops of color just weeks after planting; 5 perennial wildflowers, including Daisies and Creeping Thyme, will appear in the second season and provide color for many years to come; Perennial Clover sends deep roots into the ground, conditions soil, suppresses weeds, and nourishes bumblebees and honeybees; Perennial Fescue Grass helps stabilize soils. Our ‘Alternative Lawn’ will grow to between 3” to 24,” for a varied, low-to-mid height meadow. Wildflowers make an excellent lawn alternative – they require little maintenance or supplemental water once they are established, and they only need to be mowed once per season. This blend will grow with ease in any full sun location.
