Where to use this mix
Native perennial flower seed mix has the POWER of persistence. Each of the flowers in this mix are perennial, meaning they come back from the root each year. They also reseed themselves. Sow in full sun where the flowers will not be disturbed by tilling or mowing too close. They should be mown about once a year after all have gone to seed, in the fall or winter.
Components of the mix:
