Our Great Basin / Colorado Plateau Wildflower Seed Mix is a stunning collection of wildflowers consisting of mostly perennial and a few annual wildflower species, carefully selected to thrive from the valley floors to mid-mountain areas of the Great Basin and Colorado Plateau areas below 7,000 feet in precipitation zones from 8-15 inches.


This wildflower mix consists of spectacular perennials that will continue to bloom all summer long and keep coming back year after year if conditions are right. This mix is primarily used in road construction rehabilitation, cabin properties, prairies, fields, hillsides, in parks and in flower gardens to obtain a naturalized landscape.


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. 


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