For first year color, it's hard to beat annuals. The more time seedlings have to get well rooted, the bigger and longer the bloom in spring.

To continue yearly production of annual wildflowers, allow plants to set seed before clearing spent plants away from the area.



Baby Blue Eyes

(Nemophila menziesii)

Popular wildflower variety grown in gardens. Blooms are produced at the ends of 6" to 12" stems, well above the foliage, so that in a breeze they nod and flutter in the breeze. Flower petals open & close in response to temperature. To prolong bloom in hot inland areas, provide some afternoon shade. Grows up to 6,000' elevation.
