Bring a touch of tall, wild, native Minnesota prairie to your home with the Backyard Prairie Kit. Specifically designed to be planted in smaller, contained areas, this kit is perfect
for back yards in town or urban settings. Expect yellow and white flowers throughout the Summer and purple and lavender blooms later in the Fall. The Backyard Prairie Kit
will create habitat to attract all varieties of pollinators, as well as butterflies and songbirds too!

Consider planting in small, contained areas of your yard with full sunlight or partial shade without height limitations.

This kit includes 36 live plants.  Six plants of each species listed below.  We recommend planting in a 40-60 square foot area.  

The Backyard Prairie Kit will pair well with our Short & Tidy Kit, Short & Wild Kit, Big Prairie Kit, Monarch Special Kit, Short Prairie Grass Kit and Tall Prairie Grass Kit.
