Colorado Wildflowers

Anyone who has been to the Colorado high country in the summer remembers the vast expanses of beautiful wildflowers.  Every color of the rainbow, size and shape seem to be represented.  Each year the flowers mingle in new ways, with some thriving due to extra moisture or an especially warm year.

It is tempting to try to recreate this effect at our homes.  In the Denver metro area we can grow some but not all of the wildflowers native to the mountains.   It is possible to plant a wildflower meadow, usually from seed either late in fall or early spring.  There are numerous mixes of seeds that can mimic the look of the high mountain meadows, minus the high mountains!

If you have an area you would like to plant as a native wildflower meadow give us a call!
