2018 marked our 20th year in business and we created our 20th Anniversary Prairie Seed Mix to celebrate. Fast forward to 2022 where we've freshened the mix up a bit to keep things fun and exciting!  This mix will need at least 6 hours of sunlight a day and the finished height of this mix will be between 3 to 6 feet tall.  Performs best when planted in well-drained soils. 

Some things to remember:

This mix of native grasses and wildflowers will need at least three growing seasons to fully establish. There are some annuals in this mix for first year color.

This is a great mix to attract game birds, pollinators and songbirds. It contains some shorter growing native grasses that can be planted in upland areas.

    Elymus canadensis - Nodding Wild Rye

    Elymus virginicus - Virginia Wild Rye
