Got a problem with nosy neighbors and don't want to spend a lot of money on a fence? Let native grasses and wildflowers do the work to add some privacy to your yard.
We designed this mix with a heavier percentage of Eupatorium species that have hearty stalks, fluffy seed heads, long bloom times and grow tall. These species readily re-seed themselves to reinforce your living barrier. Add Cup Plant and Prairie Dock and you've got a native seed mix that grows between 3-8 feet tall to help block the neighbors view. Can be left standing all winter long. Natives bees will winter in the hollow stems and birds will feed on the seed heads.
Designed to bloom spring through fall once established. Typical establishment time is two to three growing seasons since this mix is primarily perennial species. These native plant species also great for attracting butterflies and songbirds. Can also be planted in those areas you just don't want to mow anymore.
