It has been thirty days since I scattered the wildflower seeds along the fence line. I have an incredible amount of sprouts in the bed now, but it is still very early to tell exactly what is growing. Maybe I just have a bunch of weeds. 🙂
Wildflowers can take up to a month to sprout, so we should have just about all the germination we’re going to get. I really hope I have at least a few of each of them.
This is what is planted in the bed: bluebonnets, Indian blankets, purple coneflower, phlox, cornflower, cosmos, corn poppy, California poppy, daisy, scarlet flax, primrose, Mexican hat and Indian paintbrush.
Of course, I have a couple wildflowers I can enjoy in the meantime. The back yard is blanketed in wild asters, while morning glory can be found along the fence line.
There’s still a lot blooming with the summer and fall plants – aster, lobelia, cuphea, alyssum, lantana, bougainvillea and a few more hibiscus bulbs are ready to open up!
