Western Wildflower Seed Mix Description

This mixture is for ornamental landscaping in the western U.S. and Canada, a combination of annuals and perennials that keep on giving. The perennials will grow back from the root-clump year after year, and the annuals are prolific seed producers and will re-seed themselves annually. Flowers will provide color throughout the growing season.  This mixture contains native species as well as non-native species that are adapted to the region.

Western Wildflower Seed Mix is formulated for the following geographic areas below 7,000′ elevation:

  • Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Idaho and Wyoming
  • Western Kansas and Nebraska
  • Montana, North and South Dakota
  • Oregon and Eastern Washington
  • Southern Alberta, Southeast British Columbia and Southern Saskachewan

For elevations above 7,000 feet we recommend our Mountain Mix.  For more southern regions we recommend our Southwest Wildflower Seed Mix

    I got the western wildflower mix blended in with a custom grass seed mix. I broadcast about 4lbs on a 1/4 acre (a little heavy?) and have gotten great results! My family loves to see the different colors and flowers as the season progresses. Gets a lot of attention from neighbors. Has really attracted pollinators as well.
