Q. Who is Mr. Smarty Plants?

A: There are those who suspect Wildflower Center volunteers are the culpable and capable culprits. Yet, others think staff members play some, albeit small, role. You can torture us with your plant questions, but we will never reveal the Green Guru's secret identity.

Please forgive us, but Mr. Smarty Plants has been overwhelmed by a flood of mail and must take a break for awhile to catch up. We hope to be accepting new questions again soon. Thank you!

Title: Source of wildflower seeds indigenous to Dallas area
Answered by: Stephen Brueggerhoff

QUESTION:

Where can I get wild flower seed indigenous to the N. Texas (Dallas) area?

ANSWER:

Your best bet for obtaining seed appropriate for your area would be to contact the good folks at Native American Seed; browse on-line to the Wildflower Center webpage, and choose the link “Buy Seed”, which will get you in touch directly with their services. They will be able to either provide what you need, or point you to a resource appropriate for your needs.
