When we describe one of our seed mixes as tall, we typically mean they reach finished heights of 5 - 7 feet. Our Native Tall Grass and Wildflower Seed Mix was designed as a native grass planting with wildflowers mixed in to provide bloom spring through fall once established.

Some things to remember:

This mix will take approximately 2 to 3 growing seasons to fully establish. There are annuals in this mix for first year color and foraging for pollinators.

Finished heights will range from 5 to 7 feet. This native seed mix will need at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight a day.

This mix can be left standing tall all fall and winter long once done blooming. It's great habitat for wildlife and the seed heads are a great food source for birds.  Cut it back in the spring for the new growth to receive light and moisture.
