Showy Flower Mix

    Description

    Many cover crop species will have colorful blooms which add good aesthetic value and pollinator habitat, however, some situations call for a little extra flare. This mix combines true, showy flowers that you would traditionally find in the flower seed aisle as well as popular cover crop species. Planted at the beginning of summer, the Showy Flower Mix will provide beautiful blooms all the way into fall. With zinnias, poppies, cosmos and more, this will be a bouquet maker.
