New for 2020:

native landscapeNative seed packets contain 39 native prairie species.  This includes 7 grasses, 5 sedge, and 27 forbs. A composition list is available on our website on the tree program page. This mix is designed for part sun with 25-50% tree cover but can handle more direct sun as well.  Great for shady gardens and edges. It will cover approximately 400 sq. ft. but, can be used to enhance areas that lack diversity if sufficient preparations are done.

Native Plant Kits contain 36 plants consisting of 6 species in six 6-packs. The species included are ones that typically take a while to establish well in a seeding. They are great as enhancements to existing or new restoration areas, butterfly gardens, rain gardens and natural areas. Kits can be used with a native seed mix to increase diversity and bloom time in a planting.  Most species are sun loving, Nodding Onion can do well in part shade.
