Our Western Hummingbird Wildflower Seed Mix features wildflowers that thrive in the harsh heat of the West to provide abundant nectar for hummingbirds. Bright blooms of Salvia, Penstemon, Snapdragons, and more will keep them coming back year after year. Natural nectar is the best way to fuel the flight of hummingbirds, and this mix is a great way to establish a generous nectar buffet. Delight in watching these winged jewels darting from flower to flower.
Our Western Hummingbird Wildflower Seed Mix will provide plenty of the brightly colored flowers that are most attractive to hummingbirds. With habitat loss and climate change threatening our flying friends, it is more important than ever to offer food and habitat for hummingbirds and other pollinators in our gardens and landscapes. The Southwest is home to more species of hummingbird than any other part of the country. Some hummingbirds are year-round residents in the American South and West, but there are about a dozen species that migrate to and from the warm winter climates of Mexico and Central America. These tiny pollinators travels thousands of miles – including long stretches over water – so they need plenty of energy reserves. Once they find a reliable food source, they will return to it year after year. Plant this mix of drought-tolerant wildflowers to keep hummingbirds coming back to your garden or meadow for years to come. Annuals bloom in the first year, proving season-long color. Perennials will start to bloom in in the second or third year, and will return for years to come. High Country Gardens seed mixes contain 100% seed with no fillers, and all seeds are non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free, and guaranteed to grow.
Check for your last frost date and plant after this has passed. Choose a
spot on your property that gets 6 or more hours of direct sun a day unless you are planting seeds for shade.
Prepare your soil by clearing the area of all existing growth. Simply dig up everything that is growing, turn the soil and rake the area flat. If this is an area that has never before been gardened, you may need to till the area up to remove growth.
Mix the seeds with sand* for better visibility and scatter the seeds directly on top of the soil. If you are sowing a larger area, we recommend using a seed spreader; if not, you can sow by hand.
We recommend lightly compressing the seeds into the soil, making sure not to bury them. You can either walk on them, use a board or if you are sowing a larger area, rent a seed roller.
Water so that the soil is moist, not soaking wet, until the seedlings are about 4-6" tall. After that, the seedlings will survive on natural rains. If you are experiencing very dry weather, we recommend watering occasionally.
