To maintain your Native Prairie, leave un-mowed throughout the growing season. Once flowers have completed flowering. you may mow prairie if desired. Once established, minimal watering is needed (once a month). If watered more frequently, the grass will grow more rapidly and smother the flowers in the mix.

 

This mix is very adaptable to a wide range of soil types and growing conditions (with the exception of extremely sandy soil).  Once established, it can withstand and adapt to heat, cold, drought, and less than ideal soil.
Best suited for the following geographical areas:  NW, California (with the exception of the extreme inland deserts, and beachfront locations where the soil is basically sand), Rocky Mountain Region, Midwest, NE.  It can also be grown in the grass ‘transition region’, which includes North Carolina west to Kansas.

The Native Prairie mix looks its best with at least 4 hours of direct sunlight per day.  If it gets less than 4 hours, the flowers do not thrive.
