Drought-Tolerant Wildflower Mix
This mixture of annuals, perennials, introduced and native wildflowers is specifically designed to thrive in sunny dry areas. This mix would be ideal for areas along paving or areas with low annual rainfall. In temperate climates, plant Drought-Tolerant 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.
