Moist Meadow Seed Packet

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 and 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.

PLS Lbs Per Acre Broadcast = 10

PLS=Pure Live Seed

Pure Live Seed is a measure of viable seed stated as a percentage. It is the product of total germination times purity.

Example: 96% Germination x 93% Purity = 89% PLS

All of our native warm season grasses and seed mixes are sold PLS.

Broadcast seeding is the process of sowing seed by hand. The seeds are sprinkled into the soil and can be lightly raked in to ensure germination.

This mix of native grasses and wildflowers typically grows to a height of 3 to 5 feet. Please note that each site is unique and that several factors can affect overall height. These factors include sunlight, hydrology and overall soil health.
