The Collin County Soil & Water Conservation District is sponsoring a fall wildflower planting program during September and October, while supplies last.  One pound bags of scarified Texas Bluebonnet seed are available for purchase for $33 per pound.  One pound bags of Fall Texas native wildflower mix are available for $25 per pound and contain 20 different varieties, including Back-eyed Susan, coneflowers, coreopsis, Indian Blanket, Mexican Hat and Lemon Mint.  Native flowers require less water and maintenance than conventional landscaping flowers and plants and can better withstand our sometimes extreme Texas climate.  Wildflowers also add beauty to the landscape and provide food for wildlife.

Wildflower seed packages are available for purchase at the District office, 1404 N. McDonald Street, Suite 100, in McKinney, now thru October.  Cash or checks only.  Please call before you come to make sure the seed is in stock 972-542-0081 ext. 3.  September and October are the optimal times to plant these wildflowers, and seeding instructions are available with purchases.
