Description: Our Drought Resistant Wildflower Mix is a stunning collection of wildflowers consisting of both annual and perennial wildflower species. Each species is carefully selected to require as little maintenance and water as possible while maintaining striking blossoms all season. While this mix does require a regular watering schedule, especially in the early weeks of establishment, it is thoughtfully designed to thrive with reduced water requirements.


The actual species used in the mix may vary slightly from one season to another.


Wildland Seed takes pride in providing wildflower mixtures free from any additives or fillers, ensuring maximum seed content for every dollar invested.


If you are interested in planting a small amount of grass with this mix, we recommend a small bunch grass such as Sheep Fescue.
