How to plant

Plant seed paper under 1/8″ of soil. Water thoroughly. Place in a sunny corner and keep moist during germination.

Black-Eyed Susan

This cheerful blossom is most at home in prairie lands, plains, meadows, and pastures where it will attract birds, bees and butterflies. Members of the beautifully golden sunflower family, these North American blooms are one of the most recognized wildflowers!

Bird’s eye

This daisy-like annual wildflower is a member of the famous Gilia family. It is a western native but will thrive anywhere with sunny and relatively dry conditions. The dark contrasting central eyes and yellow throats are known to attract hummingbirds and other pollinators.​

Clarkia

These vibrant wildflowers look great in all kinds of gardens and grow easily. They typically bloom at the end of the wildflower season, so they have often been called “Farewell-to-Spring”. Native to western North America, Clarkia is an annual plant that will grow up to 1 meter tall.

Catchfly

This bountiful wildflower produces clusters of large, globe-shaped blooms on long stems and will thrive in full sun or partial shade. It grows great even in poor soil conditions and can withstand high temperatures.

Sweet Alyssum

A low-growing annual plant, Sweet Alyssum has a branched stem that has dense clusters of small flowers. The flowers are about 5 mm around and have a sweet smell similar to that of honey. They’ll bloom throughout the growing season, or year-round in areas free of frost.

Snapdragon

An extremely easy to grow annual, these quick blooming flowers are a favorite for their unique and elegant appearance. With a range of colors from pink, red, yellow and purple, the bi-colored blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies making them a wonderful addition to any garden.
