This hardy, low-growing wildflower mix includes twelve species of annuals and perennials that can be used to replace conventional grass lawns. The blend can also be mixed in with other Lawn Solution seeds to increase forage and shelter for pollinators and other beneficial insects.

Season & Zone
Exposure: Full sun to partial shade
Zone: This blend is hardy to Zone 3.

Timing
Sow any time after last frost for fast coverage. Try to avoid planting during prolonged hot weather.

Starting
Use 1.25kg (2 3/4 lb) per 1000 square feet. Because lawn spaces tend to be large, we recommend erring on the side of caution. It’s a good idea to withhold 15-20% of seeds for filling in any bald areas later. All new plantings should be kept damp. Over-seeding existing lawn rarely works, since the seeds need to be in direct contact with soil. We recommend planting into freshly prepared top soil.

Growing

This blend is designed to require minimal care. It’s smart to water occasionally during periods of prolonged drought, but only if the plants are showing signs of stress. For maximum pollinator benefit, allow the blend to reach 5” tall (over approximately 3 months), or control with a string trimmer. Or mow (approximately once a month) to 2 1/2-3” for a manicured lawn look.
