(FALL BLEND) A blend of native annuals and perennials that provide a sea of color throughout the spring and early summer. Beyond the beauty that native wildflowers add to our landscape, they are environmentally important for a multitude of reasons: food sources such as seeds, nectar and fruits for birds, bats, pollinating insects and butterflies; attract insects for birds to consume; provide habitats for birds, wildlife and larval host plants for butterflies; conserve valuable water, preserves our natural heritage to share with generations to come are only a few. These mixes contain ONLY NATIVE wildflower seeds
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
Annual plants are plants with a life cycle that lasts only one year. They grow from seed, bloom, produce seeds, and die in one growing season. They then need to be replanted each spring.
Perennial plants live for more than two years. They return year after year and continue growing until they reach maturity, which varies by plant but averages three to five years.
