I have tried and tried to get wildflowers established, with no luck. Twice I've scattered 'western mix' seed on bare dirt. Other times I've tried to overseed on pasture grass. I'm fairly certain my problem is I don't adequately water it the first year. I don't see any bare dirt in my immediate future but would still like to try for wildflowers on my back hillside. My next thought is to gather seed of plants that self-sow in my gardens and toss them out this fall. My candidates so far are: various colors of California poppy, red field poppies, calendula, toadflax, borage, and feverfew. What else is a free self-sower in your beds, that may (or may not) grow with little to no attention.
