Local Native Wildflower Seed Packet
Contains native, locally-sourced perennial species, including the annual tidy tips and perennial species Munro’s globemallow, silky lupine, and shaggy fleabane.
All of the seeds included in this little seed packet came from sources in the Columbia Basin. That means they are adapted to our climate and precipitation and can grow in totally dry areas of your yard and are compatible with plants in nearby natural areas. These plants should also be able to tolerate a little extra water if they’re grown near irrigated areas. Germination for native species is not as quick or certain as your commercial garden seed packets. FYI – Seeds of some native species may not all germinate in the same year while others need to experience a period of winter weather (cold and/or wet) to germinate. Lupine is notoriously finicky about growing but worth a try. Be patient.
Growing directions – Sow seeds in the fall in an area that won’t be heavily irrigated. Lightly rake an area about 10 ft by 10 ft, spread the seeds across the area and lightly rake again. Water the soil once after sowing and a couple of times in late winter early spring and see what happens.
