The low grow meadow seed mix consists of wildflowers and grasses that will not exceed 4 feet (1.2 metres) in height.  The mix performs best in full to part sun in either poor, average, or well-drained soils. Low grow seed will also tolerate drought once established and is suitable for urban naturalization, green roofs, waste spaces, dry field restorations or as a lawn alternative.

(Apply at 10-15 kg/ha, green roofs and urban naturalization)
