MMF Shade Mix

MMF seed mixes

Our nursery’s Shade seed mix includes a number of native grasses and forbs that happily grow in light to moderate shade. It is appropriate for moist sites that are entirely shaded, or for the edges of larger areas. The species in this mix range from one to five feet tall. We recommend 20-25 pounds per acre, and we sell it by the pound.
