USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

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.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

What's in this Mix?

Our Intermountain Native Wildflower Seed Mix is designed for gardens and landscapes in the western US and Canada, from the front range of the Rocky Mountains to the Cascades and Sierra Nevadas. In the first season, annual Rocky Mountain Bee Plant, Globe Gilia, and California Poppies will bloom; in the second season, blooms from 16 perennial wildflowers will burst with color. (Annuals can re-seed for subsequent seasons; perennials will return year after year.) Native plants are essential for supporting pollinators, birds, and wildlife, and planting native wildflower seeds is a low-maintenance and affordable way to fill your property with these beautiful, beneficial plants. The wildflowers in this mix have a broad native range; for a mix of highly localized rare native wildflowers, see our Rare Intermountain Native Wildflower Seed Mix. High Country Gardens seed mixes contain 100% seed with no fillers, and all seeds are non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free, and guaranteed to grow.


Suitable for the mountainous regions of Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming, as well as SW Alberta and SE British Columbia. Best for elevations below 7,000 feet.

Step-by-Step Wildflower Seed Planting Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
