Mesic Short Prairie Native Seed Mix

  • Sale
  • Regular price $ 1,237.50

A diverse shorter statured native prairie grass and wildflower mix featuring a broad palette of colorful species and flowering time. Most of the species will grow to four feet or less, making this an ideal mix for areas where taller grasses are not desired. Once established, this wildflower community will display a variety of colors, booming from early spring to fall, creating a diverse habitat for birds, butterflies, moths and other pollinators. The large open spaces and shorter stature prairie is needed for the imperiled grassland birds and lets the flowers express their beauty more freely.  This mix, when implemented correctly on larger parcels, provides that exact habitat.

This mix has 65% forb by seed count so you can attract those wonderful butterflies, bees, and pollinators!

*This seed mix contains 31 species including 26 species of wildflowers, 3 species of grasses, and 2 species of sedge.

We strongly recommend adding 5 lbs/acre of the native rye cover crop with this mix to help compete against weeds. We did not include it in the mix to allow the customer to customize; keep grasses as short as possible or add for better/easier establishment.

Use this as your base and add diversity in future years by adding species through seed or plugs.
