Dry Prairie Kit

Common name: For Sandy & Dry Soils

Native plant

For our beginner to more advanced gardeners we are offering a combination of plants for sandy and drier soils. The species we've selected for this kit will offer a surprising amount of pollinator attraction, especially the Rattlesnake Master. Featuring a wide range of blooms, this kit flowers from the end of May through late Summer. It covers roughly 45 sq. ft of ground in most sunny, well-drained gardens and yards. It is not a great mix for steep slopes but can help stabilize, though it may not be aggressive enough to hold soil without extra ground cover. 

We include the following species depending on availability. Substitutions may be necessary from time to time. Substitutes are chosen based on site suitability as well as general aesthetic and bloom time.
