The Wildflowers of the West
The beautiful region of our Mountain West is home to many of our treasured native plants. Gardeners in the region can easily establish a wild flower meadow, but certain procedures need to be followed.
While elevations and temperature ranges are widely varied, the most important issue is water availability. Wildflowers are tough, but like any plants, to become established, they must have moisture. Most importantly, plant your seed near the beginning of the rainiest season for your area. Planting can be successful in fall or spring.
