Beauty is not the only reason for planting wildflowers; there are also big-time habitat benefits for all the birds, bees and butterflies.

When planting grass seed mixtures this month in the Nebraska countryside, consider using a high diversity mix that includes legumes along with plenty of wildflowers (forbs). Here’s a fantastic resource for information about wildflowers and other important plants for wildlife via the Nebraska Pheasants and Quail Forever website: http://www.nebraskapf.com/ShowPage.aspx?pageid=1248        

See you out there, wild about wildflowers and other important plants for wildlife!
