Yes! There are two types of wildflowers – annuals and perennials. Perennials come back each year on their own after becoming established. Annuals create seeds each year. Mowing annual wildflowers after they’ve created seed helps the seed drop to the ground for next year’s growth.
Plant Texas wildflowers in the fall for spring flowers. Wildflowers will begin growing leaves throughout the fall. Fast-growing annuals will start blooming in April. Perennials take longer to establish and will bloom in the first 1-2 years.
Most Texas wildflowers should be planted in late summer or early fall.
Wildflowers and native Texas grasses provide important habitat for birds, pollinators, and other small animals.
