LARGE PACKET

Bring the beauty of the early Midwest landscape to your garden with our custom mix of annuals, biennials, and perennials that bloom in shades of yellow, orange, red, pink, purple and white. In 1840, traveler Eliza Steele described the prairie as “… whole acres of blossoms all bearing one hue, as purple, perhaps, or masses of yellow or rose, and then again a carpet of every color intermixed, or narrow bands, as if a rainbow had fallen upon the verdant slopes.” Recreate the spectacle outdoors and enjoy bouquets of fresh cut flowers in your home.
