California Native Grass Mix

Native Grass Mix


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. The native grasses in this mixture are the same as those used in the native meadow lawn at the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden.
