The species in this mix grow naturally in medium-moist prairies, making them the perfect for temporarily flooded areas that also dry out in summer. Designed for planting in basins that are flooded for 24-48 hours, and then drain out. This mix is particularly well adapted to loamy and clay soils. For detention basins in sandy soils, we recommend planting our Tall Prairie for Dry Soils Seed Mix.
