The plants in this mix grow naturally in medium-moist prairies, making them perfect for temporarily flooded areas that also dry out in summer. Designed for basin or swales that are flooded for 24-48 hours, this seed mix is particularly well suited for loam and clay soils. For detention basins in sandy soils, we recommend our Tall Prairie for Dry Soils Seed Mix.

The Detention Basin-Bioswale Mix for medium to moist, loamy clay soils with seasonal inundation contains at least 20 wildflowers and eight or more grasses, sedges & bulrushes, plus annual rye.

Pure Live Seed Notes
All seed is Pure Live Seed (PLS). One PLS pound is defined as the weight of seed required to equal one pound of 100% pure, germinable seed. This is calculated based upon each seed lot's purity and germination tests. We track the ecotype origin of our seed inventory and provide this information at customer request.
