Is there an eyesore in your neighborhood? Before these wildflowers sprang up next to a suburban train station, this slope was an dead expanse of grey traprock .
Wildflowers are easy to grow, especially if you select native flower varieties. In this photo you can see bright red poppies , blue cornflowers and yellow buttercups . As long as the flowers are not cut, they will make seed pods that will scatter seeds for next year. A wildflower garden is a easy, zero maintenance flower garden. And the perfect way to disguise that neighborhood eyesore.
