<p>An estuary wildflower meadow is a type of coastal wetland habitat that is characterized by the presence of wildflowers, grasses, and other vegetation. Estuary wildflower meadows are typically found in areas that are periodically flooded by tidal waters, such as at the mouths of rivers. The plants that grow in these meadows are adapted to the changing water levels and salt levels in the soil, and they provide important habitats for a variety of wildlife, including birds, insects, and small mammals. These habitats are important for conservation and provide important ecosystem services, such as filtering pollutants and protecting against coastal erosion. <a href="https://www.realcomponline.net/">Realcomp Login</a></p>

Estuary Wildflower Meadow

<p>Looking for advice on seeds/plants to create a wild flower meadow to attract bees, butterfly and anything else.  I can set aside about 450 square yards aside for the meadow plants and when it is established will try to persuade neighbours to do the same.</p>
<p>The area can be occasionally dry, occasionally flooded with brackish estuary water which has killed previous wild flower seeding.  There is good wind protection, sun most of the day, soil seems fertile. </p>
<p>I grow various types of Armeria,  they do well but seem rather insignificant as far as bees and butterflies are concerned.</p>
