Are there any wildflower seeds which can be planted in May for the summer? I have planted a wildgrass seed mixture I purchased from Turner Seed Company and planted it today (5-2-05). It was supposed to have Illinois bundle flower in it. Is there anything else I can plant at this time? The property I am planting is near Fairfield, Texas and only gets rainwater or when I water with a hose--no sprinkler system. Thanks.
Our horticulture experts here at the Wildflower Center suggested the following:
1) Coreopsis. There are several species that would work, for example, C. basalis, C. lanceolata, C. tinctoria.
