Even growing in the yard's "Dead zone"
By Crickets Meyeres
from Kanab UT high desert 5000ft up
The southwest corner of the house is just brutal. Completely unprotected with dark rock landscaping and hot stucco house, no roof overhang. Disturbed construction soil that is extremely compacted. The wind and sun comes from that direction and it is on a non-water-retaining slope. Our soil here is the pits, alkaline and low nitrogen. It was a catch 22 that nothing I planted could get started as a pioneer species that would help pave the way for other plants. Nothing could grow because nothing was growing. So I decided to over-plant in a dense matrix of extremely hardy and water wise, sun tolerant desert plants. I went with a full arsenal of small trees, shrubs, grasses, fall planted (spring blooming) bulbs, succulents, evergreen perennials, groundcovers and then this herbaceous perennial and annual seed mix. I am happy to report that this plan of getting everything in the ground and then letting them all grow up together and supporting each other by providing one another with shade and water retention is creating a sort of living mulch. The dead zone is quickly turning into an oasis! I sowed the seeds early last winter and now that it is very early spring, they have sprouted and are doing very well! I can see several different species already. What care I provided: not much! When the ground was somewhat soft following some precipitation, I used a hard rake to create little ridges in the soil to capture the seed so they wouldn't wash away. I then spread the seeds and walked over them to press them into the soil. After they sprouted in very early spring, I watered them whenever we would have a very hot dry spell lasting more than seven days . This is such an exposed area that sometimes I had to sprinkle on a little water twice a day instead of just once. The attached photo shows a sampling of this seed mix's young growth. It looks like a miniature jungle and I could not be more pleased.

Only rain received in AZ this spring washed seed away. Then we got brutal heat with wind. Will try again. Will plant on flat area this fall. Cover with screen to protect from critters.
Even with a drought!

About Me Getting Started
I spread these seed over a large area and now my yard is completely covered with beautiful flowers. I did the spreading over several days, so they are all coming out a different times. I am so happy to have turned my backyard into a wild flower meadow. It was so ugly and discouraging and now it is beautiful and full of flowers and butterflies and bees. I have so many flowers, i have been able to gift my friends with beautiful bouquets. i am now the Flower Lady! And am hoping they will self-seed, as in your description and I will be able to enjoy my flowers for many seasons to come. And even with our horrible drought, my flowers are thriving! Thank you!
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
