A mixture of native California grasses that is easy to grow and exhibits a fine texture. The grasses in this mix include the official state grass of California, Purple Needlegrass (Nasella pulchra). If left unmowed the grasses develop into a mature stand with beautiful seed heads, some in purple colors. When mowed, the grasses produce a fine bladed turf that is resistant to moderate traffic. Can be grown as a low maintenance turf for lawns or as a ground cover on flat or sloped areas for erosion control. The native grasses in this mixture are the same as those used in the native meadow lawn at the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden.
Germination in 14-21 days with establishment in 10-12 weeks under temperatures ranging between 68-86 degrees.
