Native Plants in the Landscape - Sky’s the Limit: Native Plants on Green Roofs

Start Date

Description
Green roofs are not new applications anymore. The green building industry has grown to such a level that there is a least one vegetative roof in every major U.S. city. Although we now have several decades of trials, of techniques and materials, there are still new ideas when it comes to the plants, especially considering North American natives. We will look at several green roof projects that are unique in their applications and plant selections. Over the years we have had an opportunity to ‘experiment’ with several native species. Some have been outstanding performers, some have not.
