$1,510.00/acre ♦ $205.00 per 1/10 acre
Approximate mix weight 45 lb/acre with 86 native seeds/sq. ft.
51.8% Grasses/Sedges/Rushes; 48.2% Forbs

This mix is intended for sites that have medium soil moisture and are under full sun.  The prairie grasses in this mix will only grow to a maximum height of 4 feet, thus allowing good visibility of a diverse composition of wildflowers that produce multiple growth heights and colors.  This mix is not recommended for use in a true prairie restoration, but in a highly visible landscape setting where the concern is for strong aesthetic appeal.
