Our Wet Meadow Wildflower Seed Mix is the perfect mix of colorful wildflowers and textural grasses for wet soil. A dozen perennial wildflowers, including favorites such as Aster, Milkweed, Liatris, Helenium, Joe Pye Weed, and more will provide flowers all season long to attract butterflies and other pollinators. These wildflowers are complemented by a range of perennial grasses that provide lush green foliage and interesting textures with their petite flowers and seed heads. While most wildflowers do best with well-draining soil, our Wet Meadow Mix is specially formulated to succeed in meadows or gardens near water features and streams. All of the seed we carry at American Meadows 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?

Years of requests from enthusiastic wildflower gardeners led to the creation of our Wet Meadow Wildflower Seed Mix. A perfect solution for wet areas in your garden or meadow, this mix can even be planted along creeks and streams. Our Wet Meadow Wildflower Seed Mix includes all perennial wildflowers and grasses, including Helenium, Black Eyed Susan, Ironweed, Coneflower, and more, plus annual oats and rye to serve as "nurse crops." In the first season, annual Oats and Rye will reduce the incidence of weeds, prevent erosion, and prevent excessive sunlight from reaching the perennial wildflower seedlings while they are tender. Perennial wildflowers will show foliage in the first season while establishing their roots, and you can generally expect to see blooms in the second season. Year after year, they will mature and spread. If you would like to see colorful flowers in the first season while perennials are establishing, we recommend planting annual wildflowers that can tolerate moist soils, such as Cosmos, Zinnias, or one of our All-Annual Mixes: All Annual Wildflower Seed Mix - Variety or All Annual Wildflower Seed Mix - Simplicity.
