Red wildflowers are the best for sharing
If you're all about making bold statements in your garden, then we suggest planting one (or more) of our Red Wildflower Mixes. Vibrant, fiery reds demand attention and insist on being seen. Florists love red cut flowers, which hold a profound place at every event—birthday parties, weddings, reunions, and funerals. When you don’t know what to say, say it with flowers.
There’s no question about it—red evokes emotion. Either love or hate, but passion all the same. The color red is a dichotomy and a powerful one that neither we nor the pollinators can get quite enough of. Hummingbirds and butterflies in particular are drawn to rich red hues that signal an abundance of sweet nectar.
Whether you’re looking for the widest variety of wildflowers available or just a few that stand out, we have a winning combination for your garden. With five red blends to choose from, there’s a mix to suit every fancy and meet every need.
Choose between five winning red wildflower seed mixes
For the greatest variety, try Red Head, an exclusive red mix that contains 10 species of wildflowers. The mix is split between annual and perennial varieties, so you’ll be guaranteed blooms every year. Boasting varieties that include French Marigold Sparky, California Poppy Mikado, and Love Lies Bleeding, this mix looks as striking in the field as it does in the vase.
Or maybe you prefer simplicity. The Power Couple—Poppy and Delphinium Seed Mix combines two fabulous leads (plus one supporting character) into a magical pairing. The Red Corn Poppy contrasts beautifully with Rocket Larkspur in its varying shades of blue. The whole ensemble is brought together by the golden Bupleurum.
However you choose to design your garden, we’ve done our part to make it easy for you by narrowing your selections down to a few mixes of our favorite red wildflower seeds. Best of all, these five wildflower seed mixes are so easy to plant!
Red wildflower mixes are easy to grow and maintain
All you need to do to prepare to sow red wildflower seeds is to choose a location and bare the ground for planting. Opt for a well-draining planting site that gets at least six hours of sunlight a day. The choice is yours whether to plant in spring or fall—perennials flower sooner if they overwinter, but annuals are less likely to be killed by frost.
Mix your red wildflower seeds with sand and broadcast the mixture over your planting area. Gently press the seeds in the earth to protect the tiny things from being blown away or eaten by birds. Lightly water the area to hydrate the seeds, and in no time you’ll see the first seeds germinating!
There aren’t enough flowers in the world for people and pollinators alike. Help remedy this issue by converting some of your garden or yard from grass into a pollinator meadow. You’ll have an abundance of flowers (and pollinators) all summer long.
