A great seed mix for low moist areas that tend to stay damp throughout the growing season. Also an excellent choice for extra large-sized rain gardens where the use of transplants can 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. Wildflowers:

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.
