This grass mix for sites with part-shade is a great companion to the wildflower mixes that don’t already contain grasses. Grasses discourage weeds in the planting by filling in voids between the wildflowers and also provide winter color to the landscape. They are a component of great wildlife habitat and provide fuel for control burns, if burns are desired. These grasses share well with the wildflowers. Contains 4+ species of grasses.

Mix contents: Bottlebrush Grass, Broomsedge, Cluster Fescue, Beaked Panic Grass, Deer Tongue Panic GrassPurple Top, River Oats, Virginia Wild Rye, Witchgrass;


This mix pairs well with:
