Description

A unique set of native plants for the true prairie enthusiast! Designed to bring the look and feel of an authentic Minnesota prairie to you, this collection of plants prefers a sandier and drier environment. Expect pink blooms first in the spring followed by whites, purples, and yellows throughout the Summer and Fall. The Sandy Soil kit provides ideal habitat for many different pollinators, including bees and butterflies.

Consider planting in any area with sandy, dry soil with access to plenty of sunlight.

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

The Sandy Soil Kit will also pair well with our Short & Tidy Kit, Short & Wild Kit, and Short Prairie Grass Kit.
