Desert Mix

Desert Mix is appropriate for use in the desert regions, and also for gardeners who want to achieve a desert “look” or for use as a over-seed mix in a desert garden.  The species need heat and prefer good drainage.  Most are spring bloomers, but some will continue flowering well into summer.  Since the desert landscape is beautiful during the colorful spring as well as the  austere summer, be careful to not sow this mix too heavy.  Allow for some warm season “bare earth” and a good view of the rocks, mounds and woody plants of your desert garden, i.e.;  jojoba, globe mallow, juniper, agave, brittlebush, chuparosa and cactus/succulent species.
