Our Slope Pollinator Mix is composed of native and introduced grasses and native annual and perennial wildflowers. The introduced grasses in this mix are included because they establish quickly for slope stability but they are not at a rate where they will compete with the native species trying to establish.

The perennial native grass and wildflower species provide a long term solution for pollinator habitat on slight to moderate slopes and erosion control applications.

This mix requires at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight a day and can handle variable moisture conditions. Please factor in weather conditions when selecting a seeding time for this mix.
