Little Bit Shady Wildflower Seed Mix

$57.40 per pound

Little Bit Shady is one of Holland Wildflower Farm’s most popular mixes.  And our NEW formula is even more striking than ever!!  It consists of annuals, perennials and biennials that are  specially formulated to thrive in areas where there are shady wildflowers to bloom in those lightly shaded, partial-sun areas.  You will see beautiful blooms throughout spring and summertime and reblooming into the fall months. Some are North American natives, some are naturalized (adapted but not from North America) but not native.  Ask about our Native Shade Mix which will be available in 2022.   When your goals require natives and you have some shade this mix is currently available 479-283-6709.

Where to Use Light Shade Wildflower Mix:

Our signature Little Bit Shady  wildflower seed mix for light shade was one of our first seed mix compositions.  Knowing how many landscapes deal with large shade trees, we developed this mix back in the late 1990s.  We called it Little Bit Shady because the flowers bloomed well even in more shady conditions.  We use it  in areas with less than 6 hours of direct sun, including woodland edges and filtered sun areas. Blooms less in dark shade, blooms more where there is some bright light available.
