This workhorse mix is designed exactly for what it is named - Detention Basin, Raingarden, Bioswale Native Seed Mix. We have put a lot of thought into the versatility of native seed mix so you don't have to. It is a broad spectrum native wildflower, sedge, grass, and rush mix that works from wet to dry-mesic conditions and any spectrum in between. If prepared correctly this native seed mix establishes relatively easily and performs well in high stormwater bounce situations.
Plus this mix attracts pollinators, such as butterflies including monarch, hummingbirds, and much more wildlife species.
This mix is composed of 68% of sedge, grass, and rush species by seed count to compete in the tough conditions found in detention Basin, rain gardens, and bioswale areas!!!!
