Q

I would like to replace my dying grass with wildflowers on a sandy, hill on S. mountain. What kind of wildflowers are drought resistant and would they grow well, and where could I buy them?

Answer(s)

A

Wildflowers such as blanket flower, penstemon species, oriental poppies, coreopsis and globemallow are suggestions for drought resistant species for your situation. Granite Seed Co., http://www.graniteseed.com/mixes/index.html is good place to look for information about wildflowers as well as a good wildflower seed supplier.
