Low Stature Prairie Mix

This mix is suitable for well-drained soils in full sun. It is especially suitable for sandy or gravelly outwash soil. Low stature mixes require more mowing maintenance during the first three year to prevent establishment of aggressive perennial weeds. Not recommended for heavy soils that are wet in the spring.
