20th Anniversary Prairie Packet

2018 marked our 20th year in business and we created our 20th Anniversary Prairie Seed Mix to celebrate. Fast forward to 2021 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. 

Contains the following species:


Elymus canadensis - Nodding Wild Rye

Elymus virginicus - Virginia Wild Rye

Schizachyrium scoparium - Little Bluestem

Bouteloua curtipendula - Side-oats Grama

Bouteloua gracilis - Blue Grama

Sporobolus (compositus) asper - Tall Dropseed Grass 


Gaillardia aristata - Blanket Flower

Gaillardia pulchella - Indian Blanket

Echinacea purpurea - Purple Coneflower

Coreopsis lanceolata - Lanceleaf Coreopsis

Dalea purpurea - Purple Prairie Clover

Astragalus canadensis - Canadian Milk Vetch

Dalea candida - White Prairie Clover

Rudbeckia hirta - Black-eyed Susan

Monarda fistulosa - Wild Bergamot

Penstemon digitalis - Foxglove Beardtongue

Ratibida pinnata - Yellow/Grey-headed Coneflower

Coreopsis grandiflora - Large Flower Coreopsis

Solidago nemoralis - Dwarf Goldenrod 

Aster laevis - Smooth Aster

Aster azureus - Sky Blue Aster 

The native perennials in your mix do require some patience to establish, but for instant gratification consider adding any of these quick establishing annuals. They're perfect pollinator plants, too!
