Native prairie plants are recommended for planting over mounds and drainfields. Nutrients in the wastewater are taken up by the plants, instead of entering the groundwater. Studies have shown that the roots of prairie plants do not clog septic system pipes. For septic systems that have received topsoil over the sand and gravel backfill use our Short Prairie for Medium Soils Mix.

Wildflowers:
 Butterflyweed, Sky Blue Aster, Smooth Aster, White Aster, Canada Milk Vetch, Lanceleaf Coreopsis, Purple Prairie Clover, Pale Purple Coneflower, Rough Blazingstar, Lupine, Dotted Mint, Beardtongue, Black Eyed Susan, Wild Petunia, Stiff Goldenrod, Showy Goldenrod, Ohio Spiderwort, Hoary Vervain

Grasses: Sideoats Grama, Little Bluestem, Prairie Dropseed

Contains at least 15 wildflowers and 2 or more grasses.
Establishing a native plant community from seed can take 3 years or more, read our Seed Mix Establishment Guide.
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.
