Our Backyard Birding Wildflower Seed Mix is an easy way to grow bird and pollinator habitat right in your own back yard. A rainbow of colorful flowers will light up your landscape from spring through fall. Birds will swoop through to feed on tiny insects, and once flowers fade, seeds provide them another good food source. Includes a mix of annuals, biennials, and perennials. All of our seed is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free and 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?

Plant our Backyard Birding Wildflower Seed Mix to invite birds and other flying friends to your garden or meadow. We’ve included 9 annual wildflowers that will bloom in the first year, 2 biennials to add color in the second season, and 8 perennial wildflowers that will start blooming in the second or third season and return year after year. This mix includes several native wildflowers, which are ideal for habitat creation. We recommend leaving wildflowers standing over the winter months, for two important reasons. First, it will provide habitat for overwintering insects, an essential food source for birds and their young. Second, dried wildflower seed heads provide a food source for birds when insects are less available. Designed by The Seed Man, Mike Lizotte, exclusively for American Meadows.
