MMF Riparian Buffer Mix

MMF seed mixes

Our nursery’s Riparian Buffer seed mix is designed for riparian habitats of the southeast. It contains a mix of native grasses and forbs. It is appropriate for sites that are full sun to part shade and experience intermittent to infrequent flooding. 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.
