A wide range of plants can be used to create a wildflower meadow. Other than the examples given here, plants to try include grasses such as Cynosurus cristatus (crested dog's tail), Deschampsia cespitosa (tufted hair grass), and Agrostis capillaris (common bent). Bulbs such as bluebells, grape hyacinths, and crocuses in spring, camassias in summer, and colchicums in fall will give attractive year-round color.
