Grasses are a wonderful complement to any garden, but even more so to a rain garden. These grasses don't mind getting their feet wet. A rain garden is a depressed area in the landscape that collects rain water from a roof, driveway or street and allows it to soak into the ground. Planted with grasses and/or flowering perennials, rain gardens can be a cost effective and beautiful way to reduce runoff from your property. Rain gardens can also help filter out pollutants in runoff and provide food and shelter for butterflies, song birds and other wildlife. More complex rain gardens with drainage systems and amended soils are often referred to as bioretention. This mix consists of grasses. We also offer a perennial flower only Rain Garden mix. Use one or the other or combine them! Height: 2-4.5ft.
