I've never seen wild flowers seeds sold by colour, you probably need to buy the packs individually. If you're talking large amounts I'd go to one of the specialists, you'll get bigger packets. don't forget there are lots of different 'meadows' The annual cornfield flowers, cornflower, poppy, corncockle don't grow in grass, they need cultivated soil as in a cornfield. The perennials need to be germinated and grown on before being added to grassland to ensure success
Lots more, just search for wild flower seeds
I think I've seen packets of cottage garden-type annuals sold in clour themed packs in poundland and the like - obvs not the right thing, but maybe they have wildflower varients too.
Try a company called Naturescape, they specialise in wild flowers.
You would have to strip off all the grass first. Obviously this is going to take some time.
I did this last year to an area 3m by 10m. I then scattered seed. I filled in all the gaps with plug plants I grew myself. mainly oxeye daisy, hesperis, but also rudbeckia, verbena bonariensis, harebell, Lotus corniculata, various ornamental grasses, evening primrose, when some died at end of summer I planted allium bulbs in gaps. this spring I sprinkled more seedespecially poppies and corncockle, in the gaps.I had flowers through august sept oct, and the perennials are about to start flowering.
It might be easier to just mow the grass.
