    How to Plant Mexican Hat

    When to Plant Mexican Hat Seeds

    Mexican Hat can be sown directly in late Fall, after the first killing frost. Especially for climates with a more mild winter, Mexican Hat seeds can be sown outdoors as soon as the threat of frost has passed, when the soil is cool to the tough, but still workable. Mexican Hat seeds can also be started indoors, 6-8 weeks before the threat of frost has passed in the Spring, after cold stratifying your seeds beforehand for one week.

    Where to Plant Mexican Hat Seeds

    Choose a location that gets Full Sun exposure, and experiences warm temperatures through the season. Mexican hat can grow in nearly any type of soil, even low-fertility, drier soils. Just ensure your soil is well-draining, as too much moisture will cause Mexican hat to experience root rot.

    How to Plant Mexican Hat Seeds

    Sow seeds directly onto the surface of the soil, and firmly compress. Do not cover, as Mexican hat seeds require sunlight in order to germinate.

    How to Care for Mexican Hat

    Mexican hat requires minimal care. If experiencing exceptionally dry conditions, water manually if the edges of flowers or foliage start to get dried out. Otherwise, this variety can be cut down after the foliage has died back. Clear away any debris, and this variety will return the next season.

Love These Flowers

I had never seen these flowers before but instantly fell in love with them, esp after reading they took little care. I ordered them, planted them and they took off like crazy when warm weather hit. The foliage on them are very pretty too, in addition to the flower. I look forward to many more years of these. Thanks, Eden Brothers!

Great Flower!

We live in North Texas, where Mexican Hats are common to see on the roadside. We bought a couple pounds to plant at a nearby public park. Two years later we were blown away at how many were blooming. I imagine even more will be on display this summer. Seeds are as small as a pinhead, so just throw them where you want them to bloom. Another great product from Eden Brothers. Hands down the best place to buy wildflower seeds!
