The Emergent Wetland Mix is designed to be planted along the edge of standing water and where standing water remains most of the year, but can occasionally be a mud flat. The mix is specifically designed to contain balanced amounts of species that will thrive in the emergent zone as well as saturated soils. Species may begin to populate in up to 6 inches of water once they are established. Emergent wetlands are typically not as diverse as other community types, but the plants that do grow there need to thrive. This mix is the perfect balance of just enough diversity and ecologist selected species and amounts to thrive in touch wet conditions.
Plus this mix attracts shore birds, pollinators, such as butterflies including monarch, hummingbirds, and much more wildlife species.
