Wildfire Seed Mix #2
Rapid Erosion Control
This mixture contains fast establishing, perennial grasses and wildflowers for wildland seeding in areas under 8,000 feet in elevation. This mixture contains species which are CALIFORNIA NATIVES. Description of the varieties used:
Hordeum brachyantheru: Rapid establishment and vigorous grower produces dense stands and is useful for forage. Grows up to 30 inches high.
Molate Fescue: An attractive, drought tolerant grass that mixes well with wildflowers.
Arroyo Lupine and California Poppy: Popular native wildflowers add winter and spring color as well as soil binding properties.
This mixture provides excellent erosion control in nearly any location including construction sites, roadsides, and forests recently devastated by fire where native perennial grasses are preferred.
Recommended seeding rate for this mixture is 43 pounds per acre or 1 lb per 1,000 square feet.
For natural areas without irrigation, seed during fall and winter in advance of rains. Can be established anytime of the year with irrigation. Perennial grasses can stay green in summer months if occasionally irrigated.
Results are best if seed is covered with 1/2 inch of soil. Seeding rates should be increased if soil coverage is difficult or impossible.
