This mix draws its inspiration from oak savannas and open woodlands of the Midwest! Perfect for installing at the start of restoration or overseeding sunny woodlands that need an assist, the mix contains some of the native species to kickstart and maintain the healing process, creating competition for the pesky buckthorn and other invasives. Diversity in this mix brings functionality and beauty! If you anticipate high weed pressures from recent removals of herbaceous and/or woody invasives, consider doubling the seeding rate to challenge the unwelcome species.

We passionately believe that Carex pensylvanica (Common Oak Sedge or Pennsylvania sedge) is invaluable to Midwest woodlands! Unfortunately, it doesn't usually yield enough seed for us to market commercially, which is why we encourage you to add several flats to your order⁠—read about it at the link above! 

This mix's species are the crucial foundation of woodland wildflowers and restoration plans. However, some native woodland plants are difficult to start from seed and take time to mature. To establish these gorgeous hard-to-germinate gems, consider adding a diverse mix of flowers by installing live plants. Supplemental ephemeral flowers, grasses, and sedges can be found by clicking here. 

This mix has 51% forb by seed count so you can attract those wonderful butterflies, bees, and pollinators! It also contains 13% sedges and rushes and 37% grasses.

*This seed mix contains 35 species including 25 species of wildflowers, 8 species of grasses, and 2 species of sedge.

*Provided as Pure Live Seed

All seed sales are final and can not be returned because they are custom mixed at the time of purchase.

Shipping & Care

We want to ensure that our customers get what they want, a native backyard oasis. To do that, we need to follow a few simple guidelines and give you some information and pointers to make sure you get your plants delivered in a healthy state.

As a reminder, you will receive an email to confirm your pickup or shipping window just before the plants are ready. See Order Fulfillment below for seasonal fulfillment windows.


Choices to Receive Your Plants & Accessories

  • Retail - We only offer shipping & shipping is calculated at check out*
    • We do not offer retail pick up
  • Wholesale - Delivery is customized based on order size and location
  • Wholesale - Pickup is free


Order Fulfilment - When Your Plants or Other Items Will Be Ready

We take orders all year long and seed is shipped all year, but we only provide the plants to you in certain fulfillment windows to ensure healthy plants.

Wholesale Orders

  • Shipped or are Ready For Pick Up As Requested.


Retail & Website Orders

  • Seed Typically Ships Out Within One Week Of Order All Year Long
  • Typically, single species flats ship when ready, sometimes as soon as early to mid-April (depends on weather) through early-October.
  • Mixed species kits are batched and shipped as indicated on the product page.
  • If a plant order is placed while outside of the plant fulfillment window your plants will be reserved through your payment, however, the order will not be fulfilled and shipped until the following spring. We don't want to provide you plants when they won't be happy during the cold winter months. 
  • Early in the spring and later in the fall certain species may be dormant or partially dormant with brown leaves, however they will return to grow healthy next growing season.
  • Your order may arrive in several different shipments.
  • If certain plants within an order will not be available until a later date, we may choose to hold the full order until all are ready.  In certain circumstances, we may choose to send them in two separate shipments 
  • Fulfillment is always dependent upon plant availability.  We try our best but sometimes plants do not overwinter well and perish.  If a plant is on back order you will receive an email indicating the estimated shipping date.  If we can not provide the plant we will first notify you and give you an option of substitution or a refund of that individual species.
  • Plants are typically only packaged and shipped on Mondays to ensure they do not sit in the harsh delivery facility for extended periods of time over the weekend. You will receive a confirmation email once your delivery has been shipped and to estimate your delivery date.
  • Apparel & accessories are ready typically within one to two weeks. See product page for holiday shipping.

Where We Ship



        What to Expect When Receiving Your Delivery

        • Your plants will be packaged with the utmost care
        • We will need to cut back certain plants prior to shipping. This seems counter-intuitive, however, the fewer leaves the less water the plants can lose during shipping, resulting in healthier plants for you. This also enables the plants to fit within the protective packaging and shipped safely.



          • Larger plant shipments will look similar to the picture below with a tray of your plants and a cardboard box to protect them during shipping.



          What to Do With Your Plants After  Receiving Your Delivery

          • Inspect for damage and report any issues immediately to
          • Water your plants
          • Install your plants as quickly as possible and water the entire garden area thoroughly
          • If you cannot install your plants immediately
            • Some plants may not be in a container, put them into some kind of a container such as a paper cup with loose soil until installation
            • Make sure each plant is receiving the appropriate amount of light.
            • Continue to water daily each morning and possibly again in the afternoon
