MMF Pollinator Shade Mix

MMF seed mixes

This seed mix is designed to provide beauty and pollinator habitat to shade or part-shade areas. These species were selected to ensure blooms throughout the growing season (April through October). It is appropriate for sites that are full or part shade, with moist to dry soils. It can also be used along the wooded border of a sunny site. The species in this mix range from three to five feet tall. We recommend 20-25 pounds per acre, and we sell it by the pound.
