MNL Savanna Mix

Designed for partially wooded areas and oak savannas with 20-50% shade cover–Available in different height mixes!
Clear

This mix was specially designed for part-sun oak savannas and woodland edge sites with 25-50% tree cover, it contains a mosaic of colors and bloom times. We have designed a shortgrass and mixed height option, please note the different options in the drop down menu, and check out the species composition below. 

Seed mixes in our 500, 1,000, 5,000, and 1/4 acre package sizes come with native grasses, wildflowers, cover crop, and a filler (for easier spreading) all pre-mixed. Orders in 1/2 acre or 1 acre+ sizes come with grasses, wildflowers, and cover crop bagged separately for drill seeding or broadcast seeding.

Species of cover crop seed will depend on the time of year the product is ordered – if you order ahead and have a delayed planting time in mind, please indicate planting season (spring, summer, fall, or winter) in a note at check out.
