Description

The Drainage Stream Kit is an excellent collection of plants to bring wild, attractive, native habitat to all different types of drainage wetlands including creeks, streams, slow moving wetlands, and man-made drainage ditches. These plants will strive in moist to wet soil and are resilient enough to handle drier conditions during periods of low precipitation.  Expect eye catching beauty with white, pink, and a variety of purple blooms throughout the Summer and Fall.

Consider planting in wild wetlands, near streams, creeks, drainage ditches, or around large rain gardens.

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

The Drainage Stream Kit pairs well with our Rain Garden Kit, Wetland Edge Kit, Shoreline Stabilization Kit, Monarch Special Kit, and Tall Prairie Grass Kit.
