Wildflower seeds by mail order.

Most wildflower seed mixes include both American and European plants that naturalize readily. They're chosen because they're easy and almost failureproof and because the combination gives a long succession of bloom. Such mixtures are available on most seed racks and by mail.

To buy large quantities or to choose flowers separately (so you can control colors and placement or select kinds that are true natives of your area), order by mail from these wildflower specialists.
