Includes 10 well-behaved, long-lasting species of native wildflowers and 1 native grass species, selected to provide constant and overlapping flowering for our valued pollinators, AND 3 ground cover species in a sun-part sun, dry-moist "cottage garden. For me a "cottage garden" is one where the gardener allows the plants to find their own niches with some gentle editing in spring to eliminate any rogue reseeding or spreading.
