Arizona Wildflower Mix
This hardy mixture of annuals, perennials, native and introduced wildflowers is designed for Arizona wildflower gardens below 7,500 feet. Many will bloom the first year. The perennials will establish the first year and bloom in the following years.
In temperate climates, plant Arizona 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.

I have used this mix in Arizona the past few years and have had great results! I plant them the last week of February and they are up and growing in no time and bloom like crazy!
