Only One Flowered

I planted an entire packet and only had 1 plant actually flower.
Hannah from OH
Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to review this product. Since perennials take longer to mature we often suggest starting them indoors if you want to see them flower in their first year. We hope you will enjoy the flowers you will see next year from this colorful mix.

Beautiful for cut flowers

I planted these last year and they were just lovely. This summer, they are even more full and have been great for cut flowers. I had so many seedlings last year that I gave some to a friend. She has also had a second year of lush growth and blooms.

So far, so good

Great germination. I started these early in February in hopes of getting first year blooms. They are in many different locations, and several have bloomed the first year where they are clearly happier than other locations. Very nice mix.

Well, guess it doesn't like Texas

Had no luck at all with the Colorado Yarrow. Planted it in 3 different spots and then re-planted. Never came up. This was during the mild spring weather we had so our excessive heat was not an issue.

Owner Response: Hi Dexter, We are sorry these did not germinate for you. In your area, a fall sowing is likely easier. We test our seed germination rates frequently and also guarantee our seeds. A customer service agent will be contacting you shortly about your experience.

100% germination rate in less than 7 days. Pretty excited to grow this in my cut flowers garden this year!

Hardy flower from seed

I started these from seed in late March and they quickly germinated and continued to grow so much that I had to pot up twice! Ready for the cut flower garden in early May.

Nice variety

I really liked the colors, some were vibrant while others a bit muted, but all enjoyable. Did well in ground and in container. Requires a bit more water if used in container.

First year success

4 out of 5 stars Nov 17, 2021
I planted about 10 seeds in my greenhouse in early April. I had 100% germination which was awesome, but out of the 7 that bloomed this year, only one wasn't white. I was looking forward to adding some color to the garden so was a little disappointed there wasn't more variety. The one that wasn't white was so pale it looked white anyway, lol, but they were beautiful and hardy. Happy to have seen blooms the first year on most of the plants.

Yarrow

High germination rates and excellent quality seeds. Lightly pressed into soil and started indoors with grow lights. Hardened off and transplanted last spring. Drought tolerant and very hardy. Blooms for months zone 8B in Central Texas. Cut it back hard in the fall and is doing great!
