Sonoran Desert Re-Vegetation

Sonoran DesertDescription: A mix of native desert seeds designed to cover disturbed areas where re-growth and erosion control is sought. Mix includes some tough wildflowers, grasses and bushes. We somewhat crudely call this our “desert rape” mix- Although there are flowering plants in this mix, its primary purpose is to re-vegetate and cover damaged areas, needing a fresh start!


Contents: Creosote 19%, Triangle Bursage 19%, Encella Farinosa 19%, Desert Marigold 11%, Cassia Covesii 13%, Desert Globe Mallow 12%, Needle Grama 6%. Also included is an organic spreading agent such as rice hull, which helps cast, cover and keep seed hydrated in order to assist with germination.


Flowering Season: Can be planted year long, with spring bloom on many of the species in this mix.


Comments: Seed germination will do best if soil area to be re-vegetated is lightly “roughed up” with a rake, then seed mix cast, followed by lightly raking over, to gently cover and protect seeds from birds and/or washing away until established.
