MMF Salt Tolerant Mix

MMF seed mixes

Our nursery’s Salt Tolerant seed mix is designed for both coastal and inland sites. It contains a mix of grasses, rushes, and forbs native to the southeast; which are all considered moderately salt tolerant. It is appropriate for sites that are full sun to part shade, with soils that are moist to occasionally saturated. 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.
