Would you like to make your golf course more exciting and beautiful by adding more color? Do you want to help pollinators and wildlife? Applewood Seed Company can help. Listed below are some suggestions to help you bring color to your golf course and create pollinator habitats in various areas.

Add Color to Beautify Your Golf Course

Our Golf Course mix is a lovely mixture composed of annuals which provides an ever changing rainbow of colors through-out the growing season. It is perfect for areas that need quick color and is less expensive than purchasing nursery plants. It is also recommended for temporary beds and areas that are transitioning into more permanent, perennial vegetation in the future. Suitable for areas along fairways and paths, locations near tees and greens, and flower beds around the clubhouse.

Provide Wildflowers for Pollinator Habitat Programs

Applewood Seed Company has two, all-native wildflower mixes for pollinator conservation on your golf course. These diverse mixes were developed after many years of research in our trial gardens. The mixes are balanced blends of annuals and perennials and provide nectar and pollen throughout the growing season. They are ideal for honey bees, native bees and other pollinators.

We also have an all-native wildflower mix for natural settings, meadows, roughs and out-of-play areas. Flowers will provide nectar and pollen to many types of native bees, butterflies and other pollinators. These mixes can be combined with native grasses to create a natural looking meadow. Or use ornamental blends of easy-to-grow, native wildflowers and garden flowers for pollinators.
