Nebraska Wildflower Seed Mix
This is a colorful mixture of annuals, perennials, native and introduced wildflowers known to grow well in Nebraska. The annuals will bloom the first year as the perennials become established. Over-seeding with a mixture of all annuals in the following years will continue the flush of color that the annuals provide.
Plant Nebraska Wildflower Seed 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.
