Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Which wildflowers are included in this mixture?

A: We’re glad you asked . 🙂

  • Wild Sunflower – Helianthus annuus – Annual
  • Sunflower Lemon Queen – Helianthus annuus – Annual
  • Dwarf Sunflower Sunspot – Helianthus annuus – Annual

Q: Which states are these all annuals native to?

A: Because there are 3 different seed varieties in this mix, this entire mix isn’t native to any state in particular. These will grow in every state, and because they are annuals, you won’t have to worry about them spreading invasive species beyond where you plant them. We recommend our Wildflower Seedles if you want to plant native wildflowers.

Q: Do I really just throw them on the ground?

The optimum planting time depends upon your climate and average rainfall. In areas with colder winters, spring or early summer seeding is best. Spring plantings should be done as soon as the planting area can be worked, but after the last frost. Early summer plantings should only be done if rainfall patterns are anticipated or supplemental irrigation is available.

“Dormant” seeding can be done in late fall when temperatures are low enough that the seeds will not germinate until weather warms the following spring. In mild climates, plant fall through spring, to take advantage of winter rainfall. A fall planting allows the plants to develop and provide an earlier display of flowers in the spring. If planted in spring, make certain rainfall is expected; otherwise, supplemental irrigation will need to be supplied.

Q: What are the growing instructions for these Awesome Annual Wildflowers?

A: These easy to grow annual wildflowers work well in planting Zones 1 to 10, and the quick growing plants will become a favorite for use in container gardens, planter beds, mixed beds, and rock gardens.

Sunlight: Full Sun
Maturity: 35-50 days from germination
Height: 12-48 inches
Spacing: 4 to 8 inches apart in all directions

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are these native flowers?

A: No. These are edible flowers that also will provide a nectar and pollen source for honey and native bees. None of these flowers are known to be invasive, however some pruning may need to be done to keep plants like Borage and Lemon mint from spreading.

Q: Do I really just throw them on the ground?

The optimum planting time depends upon your climate and average rainfall. In areas with colder winters, spring or early summer seeding is best. Spring plantings should be done as soon as the planting area can be worked, but after the last frost. Early summer plantings should only be done if rainfall patterns are anticipated or supplemental irrigation is available.

Q: What are the growing instructions for Edible Flower Seed balls?

A: The Edible Flowers are a warm season annual.

Maturity: Approx. 50 days
Planting season: Late spring/summer

Site Preparation:

Edible flower varieties like a rich, well draining soil, with ample water and plenty of sunshine. Don’t worry though, they are hardy and will tolerate poor soil conditions and some drought once established. Work a shovelful or two of well-aged manure or organic compost into the soil prior to planting to improve soil conditions and help promote abundant blooms. Then plant seed balls half-way into the soil with spacing as indicated above. Water daily until they are 4-6″ tall, unless rains will provide ample water (such as in the spring or fall).

Q: How many do I need for my space?

A: Each Edible Flower Seedle contains between 5 and 10 flower seeds depending on the flower variety and their germination rate. Each Seedle can cover up to 1 square foot of space, but for a denser look of flower place 2-3 per square foot. Some of the plants, like nasturtium are shade tolerant and actually fertilize your soil by storing nitrogen near the roots.

Q: How Big Are They?

A: Each Seedle is the size of a nickel, some are slightly smaller, some bigger.

Homegrown Sunshine

California Poppies are a bumble bee’s bouncy-house. Watch with delight as these fumbly bumbly bees dive bomb the poppies, do repeated somersaults and buzz off to the next one. These striking fluorescent orange flowers add a splash of vibrant color to your space while providing the perfect playground for honey bees and native bees to tank up on much needed pollen, the potent plant protein source they need to thrive.

These orange beauties are native to many of the states in the US and are particularly hardy once established. We tossed a few of these wildflower seed balls into our front yard and a few months later we had 30+ poppy flowers shining back at us during their daily sun salutations. We can’t help but smile when we see them, they just have that power to put a big fat grin across your face.

Each California Poppy Wildflower (Eschscholzia californica) seed ball contains 10-25 california poppy seeds. We recommend planting them about one per square foot for a meadow look.
