Over the last few years, Colour Splash mixtures have started to be used on many different sites in the UK. The mixtures have been used in a broad range of landscape and amenity areas.
The development of the mixtures started over ten years ago in the county of Loir-et- Cher, in the centre of France. Colour Splash mixtures meet the numerous expectations of the public who enjoy seeing a dash of colour: their effect on the landscape is the most obvious one. For wildlife they can provide a refuge that offers a rich and varied source of food.
When sown strategically near municipal sites and landscape areas Colour Splash mixtures represent a remarkably simple way of brightening up such locations and enhancing their aesthetic appeal.
For bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects, they are a source of pollen and nectar, sometimes very useful when other resources are rare.
