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?

Our Wildflower Yard Annual Bold Color Seed Mix will create a cheerful, colorful, and compact display in your yard. This mix features 9 annual varieties, both native and non-native, including Forget-Me-Nots, Baby Snapdragons, and Cornflowers. Easy-to-grow 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, Plus, they attract butterflies, bees, and pollinators all summer. At manageable heights from 9 to 20 inches, the flowers in this mix won’t block your view, and may satisfy most lawn-height ordinances and HOA regulations. Annuals have a one-year life cycle, blooming just weeks after planting, and flowering through frost. Some annuals may reseed, but we recommend planting fresh seed each year for best results. (Formerly called Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix – Simplicity)

This mix includes 9 annual wildflowers for first-year color.
