Montana Wildflower Mix
A colorful mixture of annuals, perennials, native, and introduced wildflowers that are known to grow well in Montana. The annuals will bloom the first year and the perennials will establish their root systems and many will bloom the next and following years. Reseeding with a mixture of all annuals in succeeding years will continue the flush of blooms each year. Plant Montana Wildflower Mix in the late fall or 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 in the spring, 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.
