Native meadow plants --adapted to thin glacial till soils, windswept rocky outcroppings, and shifting salt spray beaches -- are the optimal solution for tricky planting sites: highly altered urban soils, post industrial lands, roadside verges, and more. The species represented here have been engineered over ten thousand years for the toughest planting sites you can imagine.
