Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jules Beautiful flowers!
These are still flowering - planted in June as a last minute desperate attempt to fill in part of a fence line. It filled in nicely and once they start flowering, they don't stop. Did two spots to test - the full sun spot obviously grew the biggest - partial sun spot bloomed but they're a lot shorter. Going to trim them down in 2 weeks - I hope the seeds sew and come back again next year. I would definitely buy another bag and continue along the fence. You have to rake them in well or rain and watering will carry the seeds away - got a couple randoms in weird spots. For the best effect, though you have to really clump them in sections.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MPworks Awesome Results!!!!!
I read some of the negative reviews, not sure how those persons got no results but likely it was due to user error. I followed the instructions and made sure I planted in Full Sun, prepared the soil, and kept the seeds moist until germination (and even then not too faithfully). Below are 3 pictures. My cell phone camera photos REALLY DON'T capture the stunning, vibrant colors and I took the photos while the sun was blasting and it washed out some color but trust me the seeds did wonderfully for me!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Startupmama Weather( not product ) was our problem.
I sowed this seed heavily last fall in an area of our side yard, after laying cardboard all summer to suppress weeds.
It grew and offered nice coverage of the area (basic green plants) throughout the winter. We are zone 8, and the area is somewhat protected.
Then, 2 things happened. Our yard guy's kid tore through it all with a string trimmer in the spring, just as we were about to get flowers. Shortly after, we got a month of rain that drowned the more drought tolerant plants in the mix.
So we have gaps in our wildflower patch that haven't recovered. I will resow in the fall and let rain / runoff / drip irrigation do what they did well last year.
Sow the seeds in cool weather, so that the soil can keep them moist long enough to germinate. Sow lots more than you think you will need. If too many plants come up, you can always pull out the extras. Especially once you start recognizing the leaves of the plants you like / don't like.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by brucebanner Nothing like the picture on the bag.
6 weeks after sowing the seeds, nothing......no sprouts, nothing. Maybe things will magically change in the coming weeks but so far, I got a big fat zero.
Think that I'm better off buying seeds off of ebay next year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tina Very happy!
I planted a bag of this along my gravel driveway last summer. They started blooming quickly and lasted for a couple of months. They kept on producing a lot of really pretty blooms even into the fall. I didn't put too much effort into the project either....just raked the dirt loose and threw them in and leveled it out. It was easy. The only thing I am doing now is trying to figure out if the new seedlings are in fact the wildflowers and not weeds. It's so hard to tell this year. Not sure if I should till it up and plant some more or just wait it out.

I wanted to bring out the best in my backyard and this failed to do so. After putting so much work into nothing is very disappointing to say the least. There was only a single flower and nothing else. It looks like a bed of weeds. Do not purchase this product because you will be greatly disappointed especially after following the instructions carefully.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYdan Everything looks good thus far
I have two 60' garden beds around old tree stumps in the back yard, so I wanted something to fill the area, and thought wildflowers would look nice, especially a mixture of spring, summer, and fall blooming flowers to give the garden variety. Another reviewer said there are a lot of weeds. I am really new to gardening, but right now, and as I was advised by some gardeners in the area, is that for the first year, only the annuals mixed in will blossom and as the perennials grow and bloom each season, it will start to fill out. Right now, everything looks like weeds - and some people consider certain wildflowers weeds, so in that case, you'd be best just planting black-eyed susans and joepye so you know exactly what you are getting and that it is something that you like. I planted back in early May, and I am excited to see what is going to bloom, as there are buds already. I will have to borrow a digital camera to take pictures, which will be better than just words.

Only one rather scraggly weed with white flowers predominates. I liked the old weeds better.
