Our savanna mix provides color from April into October and attracts many kinds of wildlife. 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.
Contents of the mix vary from batch to batch due to availability. Contact us for the current mix contents. Native grasses are sold separately. As of Oct 10, 2017, the mix contains pussytoes, columbine, marsh milkweed, common milkweed, several aster species, Ohio horsemint, wild hyacinth, American bellflower, star tickseed, dittany, purple prairie clover, mullein foxglove, tall larkspur, coneflowers, elephant's foot, Joe pye weed, closed gentian, woodland sunflower, alum root, wild hydrangea, St. Andrew's cross, twoflower Cynthia, bee balm, false garlic, and nearly 20 more species.
