January 2, 2020thafler Here is a hummingbird trumpet in the foreground and a mixed meadow with dozens of Plains Coreopsis blooming in back. All planted in April and all coming along beautifully. Annual wildflowers like California poppy and plains Coreopsis are the first phase in establishing a native grass meadow and play a crucial role in stabilizing and preparing the area for the grasses which will start to dominate the meadow in years to come. This is why it’s best to use a mix of wildflowers and grasses when vegetating an area, aside from the fact that it looks great too. All irrigated by subsurface Netafim irrigation tubing which is much more efficient than above ground sprinklers.
