Description

The wetland shrubs and sedges can create a typical shrub/sedge wetland and provide year-round food and cover for many game animals and migrating birds. Establishment takes several years, but costs much less than planting seedlings or potted material. Seed from October-May in full sun to shaded areas in wet soils. Mix formulations are subject to change without notice depending on the availability of existing and new products. While the formula may change, the guiding philosophy and function of the mix will not.
