I’m learning the names of wild flowers and became aware that many are so vigorous, they are considered weeds. A short list include bachelor buttons and alyssum. Notice all the bachelor buttons in this meadow! I wanted some of these.
I still think they are lovely and don’t mind that they’re mixed into the packets I planted in our yard because they’re strong growers. A packet or two of different wildflowers will often work better than pounds of seed. Birds love wildflowers, will line up to observe them and eat until every seed is gone. If planting in the wilds, be real philosophical about the seed, the birds, other wildlife, and be prepared to share (a lot). In town or in areas where there is no cover for the birds and the wildflower seed is planted late there is usually a great wildflower show.
