A bit at a time over the last month I've been *snow sowing* seeds in the wildflower meadow. Whenever we're forecast a few inches of the cold white stuff I've taken a few varieties out there and scratched up a bit of dirt to toss them in. Have you tried this? If so, what were your results?

These are the varieties I'm working with now. Most enjoy a cold stratification period to germinate well, so they go out first.

Camassia scilloides - Wild Hyacinth
Camassia leichtlinii - Greater Camas
Actinomeris alternifolia - Wingstem
Gaura coccinea - Scarlet Gaura
Gentiana crinita - Fringed Gentian
Gentiana quinquefolia - Stiff Gentian
Geum triflorum - Prairie Smoke
Helenium autumnale - Sneezeweed
Helianthus laetifloris - Showy Sunflower
Helianthus grosseserratus - Saw-tooth Sunflower
Heliopsis helianthoides - Early Sunflower
Hydrophyllum virginianum - Virginia Waterleaf
