The Native Eco Mix is a perennial, native tall grass mix for elevations 7,500 and higher. Similar to the Mountain Meadow mix, this is designed to attract wildlife and/or create a more meadow effect. It can easily grow to 2 1/2 feet tall. This mix can be used when all native species are desired or required by regulating agencies. It does contain 10% Blue Flax, a pretty blue flower that establishes easily. The seeding rate is 15 – 20#/acre or 2#/1000 sq. ft.
