Lindley's Blazing Star (Mentzelia Lindleyi) - Start Mentzelia Lindleyi seeds for this drought tolerant, fragrant flower. Known as Lindley's Blazing Star, this annual is found native in California and Arizona, but can grow across the country. Mentzelia Lindleyi Blazing Star needs to develop a tap root, so it does best in loose, fast-draining, sandy soils. This beauty with golden, star-shaped flowers was a food source for Native Americans. With the right conditions, this one is easy to grow from wild flower seeds. It has feathery foliage and blooms profusely with large, showy yellow blooms.

Lindley's Blazing Star wildflower is an annual, so it grows fast, blooms for a long period of time, and then dies off with first frost. Lindley's Blazing Star seeds can be started directly outdoors once temperatures are warm. Lightly cover the Mentzelia Lindleyi seeds with soil and maintain moisture until germination occurs. Lindley's Blazingstar is a hardy annual, tolerating drought, poor soil, and heat.
