Midwest Wildflower Mix
This sure-to-please mixture of annuals, perennials, native, and introduced wildflowers is designed to grow well in the Midwestern U.S.A.. Many will bloom the first year with the perennials becoming established and blooming in the following years. The first year’s impact of annual bloom can be repeated by reseeding with an All Annuals Mix.
Plant Midwest Wildflower Mix in the early spring. Lightly rake in and cover with a thin layer of good soil or mulch to aid with water retention, no deeper than 1/8 – 1/4th inch. If irrigation is possible, soak the area once and keep moist until germination. In dry climates or in drought, up to 1/2 inch of irrigation per week may be required after germination until plants become well established.
