While people love wildflowers in their natural environment, their potential as flowering landscape plants remains largely unfulfilled. Lifecycles of many wildflowers allow shifting from labor-intensive landscapes to plantings that require less maintenance. Wildflowers can replace part of a lawn and can be selected for varying bloom periods to extend colors from spring through fall. Here is a complete guide to growing more than 180 native and adapted plants, offering gardeners and homeowners ideas on creating colorful, low-water landscapes. It provides a wealth of information on how to use wildflowers in gardens of any size, from an entryway planting to a multiacre meadow. Step-by-step drawings show how to prepare planting sites to avoid weeds and how to seed, water, and maintain plantings for a long season.
