Our Moist Meadow Mix is great for areas that tend to be wetter the majority of the year and are not close to any waterways that are subject to flooding (check out our Ohio Flood Plain Mix for those areas). These areas are depressions or low lying areas and the species in this mix will adapt to varying moisture levels throughout the growing season once established. Tall native grasses help stabilize soils and percolate water and native wildflowers provide color and habitat for foraging for pollinators. Once established, finished heights for the species in this mix are about 5 to 7 feet tall. This mix will need at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.

Some things to remember:

This mix of native grasses and wildflowers will take up to three growing seasons to fully establish.

Do not seed this mix into standing water. You will need to wait for the area to dry out some. This may lead to seeding in a time that is not optimal. Contact Us if you have seeding questions.

A cover crop may be needed to stabilize the soil while the native species establish. Regreen™ is a good option.
