Here's a great seed mix for low moist areas that tend to stay damp throughout the growing season. This is also an excellent choice for establishing native plants in large rain gardens where the use of transplants may be cost-prohibitive. The species in this mix tolerate periodic flooding for a day or two, as well as dry periods between rainstorms. Not recommended for dry sandy soils that drain rapidly and do not retain moisture. You'll be amazed how many birds and butterflies will be attracted to your Moist Meadow/Rain Garden planting!
