Our dry, shallow soil mix provides color from early May into October and attracts many kinds of wildlife. Sow in areas with thin soil and plenty of sunshine. It consists nearly entirely of perennials with a few annuals or biennials that will provide some color while the perennials get established. This mix should be sown in late fall or winter--early February at the latest. Seed sown after February may not get the cold moist treatment (stratification) that it needs in order to germinate.
Native grasses are sold separately.
