I have added new species* to the Red Lodge Mix that prolong and produce more colors! This mix is designed to withstand temperature extremes, can be grown in all regions, except coastal & deep Southern Regions, and is not palatable to deer. You can mow down to 6-8 inches after all plants have browned after “killer-frost”, this redistributes all annual and perennial seeds.
(a) annuals, bloom the first year, and reproduce by seed, individual plants die each year.
(p) perennials bloom the second year, individual plants live for years, and reproduce by seeds.
