Uses in the landscape: Little Bit Shady is our popular shade wildflower seed mix can answer many problems in the landscape. The eastern deciduous forest can offer some shady landscapes and LIttle Bit Shady shade wildflower mix is useful in part-shade, full sun or dappled sun. We call partial shade (less than 6 hours of full sun), dappled sun (where there is sun but it is partially blocked by trees or screened light), and full sun. We selected these shade tolerant flowers strictly on their ability to bloom in partial sun, and lower sunlight areas, and it creates a dynamic changing show of flowers year after year. Little Bit Shady shade wildflowers work well in a variety of soil types from rocky to moist, and everything in between. HWF’s signature seed mix features shade tolerant wildflower seed adapted for lightly shaded gardens, with partial or full sun areas. Add soil or compost before seeding to areas where tree roots may limit moisture available to seedlings They don’t need great soil but they do need some soil.
