Attracts hummingbirds to your garden! This beautiful wildflower mix has been created with the vibrant colored, nectar-rich species that hummingbirds (and other pollinators) love. Containing mostly perennials, plants will take the first year to establish and bloom the second year. Seed pack (1 oz) treats 100 square feet.
Note: A few annuals have been included with this mix to add color the first year while perennials become established.
Hummingbird Mix Includes:
Firecracker Penstemon, Foxglove, Larkspur, McKenna’s Columbine, Perennial Lupine, Russell Lupine, Rocky Mountain Penstemon, Scarlet Flax, Scarlet Sage, Scarlet Gilia, Standing Cypress and Rocky Mountain Beebalm.
The ideal time to plant wildflowers is either in the spring (one month prior to date of last hard freeze) or late fall (after October).
For even distribution, combine with clean, dry sand at a ratio of 4:1 (sand to seed) and scatter by hand or mechanical spreader. Gently rake over the area covering to a depth of 1/8 to 1/4 inch or 2-3 times the seed diameter. Keep moist for 4-6 weeks to ensure the best germination.
