Growing & Maintenance Tips

Control existing vegetation before planting to reduce competition for flowers seedlings. Broadcast or plant with a grass drill, the goal being shallow seed placement (1/16 inch deep) into a firm seedbed. Dormant seed in winter, or plant in early spring. Light mulch may be applied after planting to help maintain seed bed moisture.

Bloom Time: April - October

1 lb: Suggested planting rate is one bag per acre as a compliment to a prairie grass landscape. 5 bags per acre are suggested in setting without grass.

1/8 lb: Suggested planting rate is one bag (1/8 pound) per 100 square feet (10'x10' area)
