A great seed mix for low moist areas that tend to stay damp throughout the growing season. This is also an excellent choice for an extra large rain garden, 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. This seed mix is not recommended for dry sandy soils that drain rapidly and do not retain moisture. The Moist Meadow/Rain Garden will attract and support a variety of pollinators, butterflies and birds. Contains at least 20 wildflowers and 6 or more grasses, sedges and bulrushes.
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.
