Flowers for meadows
 
Our page on suggested lawn flowers covers species tough enough to withstand a certain amount of trampling. Other plamts that don't cope so well in a short-mowed lawn are listed here.  They are ideal if you want to relax your mowing, and allow parts of the lawn to grow longer.  They are in fact flowers that thrive naturally in meadows. True meadows are not easy to create from scratch on a typical lawn, but you can work over time to create meadow-like longer grass areas provided the soil is not too fertile which make the grass out-compete other vegetation.
