Description

The Tall Prairie Grass Kit provides a hearty assortment of tall, native prairie grasses. This kit is specifically designed to be used alongside many of our taller
prairie flower kits to provide ground cover, color, texture, and support. With thick growth and height potential of over seven feet, it will provide lush habitat
for insects, pollinators, and songbirds of all types.

Consider planting with other tall prairie flowers for support and in open areas with no height restrictions. Great for open spaces to minimize soil erosion.
Suitable for all ranges of sunlight and moisture.

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

The Tall Prairie Grass Kit will also pair well with our Big Prairie Kit, Backyard Prairie Kit, Woodland Edge Kit, Drainage Stream Kit, Wetland Edge Kit, Shoreline
Stabilization Kit, Monarch Special Kit, and Short Prairie Grass Kit.
