Rain Garden Native Seed Mix

This Rain Garden native seed mix is composed of native grasses and wildflowers that can tolerate wet events and dry areas based on season and the amount of rainfall. Also filters stormwater runoff. Beneficial and beautiful, the Rain Garden creates diverse color and is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Read through our Rain Garden Manual for Homeowners to help you get started with your project.

Some things to remember:

  • Establishment time is about 3 growing seasons.
  • This native seed packet would work great in areas that are partial to flooding during rain events. It is great for filtering storm water runoff.
