Restore a piece of the prairie with our Little Prairie Native Wildflower Seed Mix, featuring hardy native wildflowers and grasses. Above ground, the plants provide habitat for butterflies, birds, and beneficial insects, with colorful wildflowers in bloom from spring to fall. Below ground, deep root help filter water, improve soil health, sequester carbon, and prevent erosion. Plant this mix and enjoy watching pollinators and birds fly from flower to flower, with wildflowers and grasses swaying gently in the breeze.
Our Little Prairie Native Wildflower Seed Mix will help you restore a piece of the prairie right in your own back yard. Thriving prairies with abundant plant and animal life once defined the landscape west of the Mississippi. Today, there is a growing movement to restore this ecosystem, starting right in our own backyards. This mix includes 5 annual wildflowers, 8 perennial and biennial wildflowers, and 2 perennial grasses, growing up to 5 feet tall when mature. Annual wildflowers 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. Look for a colorful mix of red, yellow, white, and purple blooms that will attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. 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.
