Prairie Dropseed Grass Seed Short Meadow – Perfect Ground Cover Garden Perennial Grasses
Grasses make great ground-covering plants between shrubs or accent perennials or planting as a meadow.
This fun grassy perennial only grows 18″-24″ tall when in flower and forms deep green mounds.
Easy to raise from seed, these seedlings will slowly develop into strong fast-growing clumps of grasses that can be divided and used in multiple locations.
SOWING TIPS: Average of 25+ seeds per pack multiple quantities available.
Direct sow seeds in fall and allow seeds to naturally cold stratify. When starting seeds indoors, sow finely and barely cover seeds with soil. I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early.
1) Sow direct in a prepared seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location outdoors
3) Under lights
4) Bright windowsill
I like to grow in pots this way you can break dormancy, simply by moving the pots around and most seeds germinate in batches, care must be taken when picking out to avoid disturbing emerging seedlings.
Pot young plants on until large enough to plant out, this native plant mix prefers poor soil in full sun
