Perennial Wildflower Seeds

You know the adage about perennial wildflowers. First they sleep, then they creep, then they leap. Perennials need their first year to establish roots and many don’t even flower until the second year. Planting perennial wildflower seeds is one of the most thrifty things you can do in your gardens. Foxglove and lupines are both underused magnificent bloomers in gardens, and they can cost many dollars per plant from garden centers. You can have dozens and dozens of them blooming next year if you plant seed this year. Growing all the flowers for cutting that you’ve always wanted — daisies and Echinacea and Rudbeckia – is simple from seed. One packet of seed can give you dozens of  perennial wild flowers just one year from planting.
