Flower Native Texas Bluebonnet Maroon 100 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
A hardy winter annual native to Texas. Adopted as the "State Flower of Texas", this is the most commonly seen variety along roadsides and in uncultivated pastures throughout the state. Flowers are densely arranged on a spike with a characteristic ice white terminal tip. Should be planted in the Fall for Spring growth. You may be able to "fool" the seeds by placing in the freezer for a couple of weeks.
Bluebonnets cannot tolerate poorly drained, clay based soils. Seed planted in poorly drained soils will germinate, but plants will never fully develop. Seedlings will become either stunted or turn yellow and soon die. Prefers a sloped area in light to gravelly, well drained, soil with a pH level between 6-7.
Bluebonnets require 8 hours of direct sun.
Suggested Use: Raised flower beds, half wooden barrels, hanging baskets, mixtures, hillsides, roadsides and meadows.
Miscellaneous: Easy to grow from seed providing you do not have an overabundance of rainfall and plant in well-drained soils. Blooms in about 70 days. Germination rate about 70%.
Wildflowers are exactly what the name implies, "wild" which means you plant them in the fall for spring growth. Spring means when your ground has thawed and the soil temperature (not the ambient temperature) is at least 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Wildflowers are not made to be started inside and transplanted.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
