Packet of Annual Cut Flower Wildflower Seeds
99% Pure Live Seed

Purchase our Annual Cut Flower seed Mixture, for a specialty blend of colorful wildflowers that are perfect for bouquets and floral arrangements. This mixture consists of 25 species of wildflowers, 75% of which are annuals, 18% of which are biennials and 7% of which are tender perennials. The majority of the wildflowers within this mixture will grow to a mature height of 18 to 24 inches tall. Some varieties can grow to as tall as 60 inches tall, and the shortest growing plants will only grow to a height of 8 to 12 inches tall.

Annuals will grow quickly from freshly harvested seeds. They bloom profusely through the summer months and later die with the first killing frost. Seeds can easily drop to the bare ground beneath, regrowing fresh plant life the following year. Biennials and tender perennials will require a two year growing period before blooming. This blend of Wildflowers will produce plants in practically every color of the rainbow, from red, orange, yellow, blue, violet and even green & white. A few popular favorites are Zinnia, Evening Primrose, Black-Eyed Susan, Asters and Sunflowers as well.

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 Annual Cut Flower wildflower blend 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 8 and 60 inches tall. The vast majority of your wildflowers will grow between 18 and 24 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. Many annuals will readily self seed, dropping their seeds to the bare ground beneath, at the end of the Autumn season. Check above for the differences between perennials, biennials and annual flowering plants.
