This is a Native Wildflower Seed only mix suitable for coastal areas. Plants growing in coastal areas are subject to more extreme conditions than inland areas. Strong winds and salt laden air can dry out foliage and limit growth of some wildflower species that have not evolved to grow in coastal areas. Loose, sandy ground means that roots have access to lower soil moisture as they are growing. The wildflower seeds included in this mixture have evolved to grow in areas with salty air, strong winds and loose sandy ground.
The specially selected wildflower species included in this Native wildflower Seed Mix thrive in coastal conditions. This beautiful selection of wildflowers will enjoy the exposed and drier environments that our coastal landscapes possess.
Wildflowers such as Thrift, Bladder Campion, Knapweed, and Lady’s Bedstraw are just a few of the 21 species you will enjoy to bloom and bring a burst of colour to your garden space. The perennial wildflowers provide long lasting colour throughout the summer and return year after year to create a meadow that you can enjoy now and into the future. The Annual wildflower species will produce an impressive display of colour from year one.
