New Mexico Wildflower Mix
This is a colorful and hardy mixture of annuals, perennials, native and introduced wildflowers known to grow well in New Mexico. 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.
In temperate climates, plant New Mexico Wildflower Mix in the fall when the soils have cooled and there is more moisture. In northern areas, plant 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.
