Product Description

Choose our Low Growing Wildflower Mixture to establish a colorful blend of flowers, that only grow to about knee height. The vast majority of these plants will reach an average height of about 12 inches to 20 inches tall. This makes them a perfect choice to use in flower beds, raised beds, along fences & driveways, as well as walkways too. The Low Growing Wildflower Mixture consists of 17 species, 59% of which are annuals. The remaining varieties are 14% perennial, 13% tender perennial and 14% biennial.

Annuals will grow quickly from freshly harvested seeds. They bloom profusely through the summer months and later die with the first frost. Seeds can easily drop to the bare ground beneath, regrowing fresh plant life the following year. Perennials will establish a deep root system within the first year of growth. The plant life will then wilt on the surface, later returning the following Spring. This blend of Wildflowers will produce plants in practically every color of the rainbow, from red, orange, yellow, blue, violet and even white. A few popular favorites are Cornflower, Wallflower, California Poppy, Chinese Forget-Me-Not and more.

Site Specifications

The first thing that you should know is, that most wildflowers are adaptable to the conditions that they are exposed to. Having said that, as long as your soil is not 100% clay based, or swampy and soggy, you will receive great results with your wildflower project. Optimal temperatures should be between 70F and 85F for most of the varieties listed. This Low Growing  Wildflower Mixture will thrive in an area that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. If the ground remains soggy and wet when watered, you will want to add a light compost to your sowing area. Mix it with hard, compact soil to increase your drainage.

Sowing The Seed

Some wildflowers can be started indoors and later transplanted, however this particular mixture of seed is best established directly outdoors, when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Begin by prepping your sowing area by tilling the dirt. You can do this by using a shovel or a motorized tiller device, such as the rototiller. This piece of equipment is sold at many local garden centers and home improvement stores. You may consider renting one, versus buying it outright if you don't plan to use it often. Once the dirt is loosened up, rake away any old plant life and level your sowing area.

Now that you are ready to plant the seed mixture, simply pour the seeds in a bowl or bucket, mixing them with a bit of play sand. Scatter the seeds to the surface of the soil, allowing them to receive direct sunlight. This is crucial for most wildflower seeds to develop, so don't cover them with soil. Instead, use a roller or the back of a shovel, to lightly press the seed mixture into place. Water immediately after sowing, to make sure that they stay put. Use a light shower setting, or mist setting to avoid washing them away.

Germination & Growth Habits

At least half of the seeds in this mixture will begin to sprout within the first 7 to 10 days after sowing. The rest will follow shortly after. The plants can take a few weeks to grow, reaching a mature height of anywhere between 4 and 36 inches tall. The vast majority of your wildflowers will grow between 12 and 20 inches tall. If the seeds were distributed evenly enough, your coverage will be pretty thick. Within 5 to 8 weeks after sowing, plenty of annual flowers will begin to bloom. Perennials & biennials will follow suit, later in the season, or in the following year. Many annuals will readily self seed, dropping to the bare ground beneath, at the end of the Autumn season. Check above for the differences between perennials, biennials and annual flowering plants.
