MMF Wetland Shade Mix

MMF seed mixes

Our nursery’s Wetland Shade seed mix is designed for wetland creation and restoration. It contains a mix of grasses, sedges, and forbs native to southeastern wetlands. It is appropriate for sites that are shaded and have moderately to significantly wet soils. 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.
