Tall Grass Prairie Mix

Tall Grass Prairie Wildflower Mix - Sunmark Seeds - Portland, ORBetween the Missouri River and the Rocky Mountains lies the grassy expanse once dismissed as the Great American Desert. Early 19th century expansion advocates urged settlers to skip the interior and proceed directly to the far west. A land official wrote in 1868 that the plains were “an obstacle to the progress of the nation’s growth…in not yielding that sustenance for increasing population.” When homesteaders settled in, they discovered what the native Plains tribes had known for centuries: that the “desert” was a mosaic of different regions, each with its own climate and vegetation, each with its own character. Tall Grass Prairie Mix is a historical representation to what was once a great and flowing Prairie. A mix of flowers and grasses from the Tallgrass prairie region. Best for moderate to moister sites. Plant in late spring or early summer. Very high wildflower to grass seed ratio for a showy display of brilliant colors.
