A Low-Growing Meadow is ideal in a variety of situations, and this seed mix is perfect for urban and suburban landscapes. The majority of the flowers are no taller than two to three feet high, with only a few flowers rising higher. During summer, the grasses stay low, and play a supporting role as the flowers put on their colorful show. In fall, the focus turns to seed heads and grasses that turn bronze, gold and copper with the frost. For well-drained sandy, gravelly and rocky soils. Contains at least 15 wildflowers and 2 or more grasses.
Important. Native seed mixes take three years to fully mature. In the first year, seedlings will expend their energy developing roots, and the plants may grow only an inch or two. During the first two years your site will require mowing to control weed growth. After two or three season the natives will begin to reign. The process requires patience, but even more important is to discourage the growth of weeds during the establishment – the first three to four years.

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.
