Colorado Wildflower Mix
This is a stunning mixture of annuals, perennials, native, and introduced wildflowers that are designed to grow well in Colorado. Many will bloom the first year with the perennials becoming established the first year and blooming the following years. The first year’s impact of annual blooms can be repeated by reseeding with an All Annuals Mix.
This mix also is available in a ‘Livestock Safe’ version that excludes Lupines and Larkspurs.
