Sedum shoots or plants

Sedum shoots mixture in 5-7 sorts and species according to season

Sedum shoots are cut-off shoots of sedum plants, which can be strewn on the substrate for extensive roof greening.

Sedum plants settle in nature in sunny stone quarries, rock faces or stony slopes. With their thick fleshy leaves they are very resistant to dry periods and are heat resistant and also can live in arid ground, they are however grateful for better ground, which must not be waterlogged under any circumstances. They are well suited for sound covering of woods, patios, flat-bottomed roof areas and tops of walls, for sunny banks and gravel areas in connection with steps stones and plates and cemetery plants. Sedum types expand quickly sometimes more sometimes less to thick lawns. Over which then countless blooms in thick branched light pink to white, pink colours to purples to golden yellow clusters stand.

Location: sun
Growth height: 5-15 cm
Flowering time: May until August

The shoot parts must be provided with moisture regularly after being spread on the green roof, so that they can begin to take root. Depending on the season the plants begin to grow in length after 2-4 weeks. This is a clear signal that they are now forming roots and have grown. From this point on regular watering can be slowly reduced. A green roof which has sedum shoots on it needs on average 6 months longer to reach the established phase as a green roof with rooted plants.

As in the case of shoots we are dealing with freshly cut parts of plants without roots, these cannot be stored but must be processed immediately. Should this be not possible, the shoots can be kept for a maximum of 24 hours in a cool, dry, wind-protected place. Please do not put them in the fridge, as low temperatures damage the plant parts. Also the shoots should not be watered during storage, otherwise they can be a build up of mould. Directly before bringing them out it is advisable to submerse the bag with the sedum shoots in a bucket of water, so that the shoots can really absorb water again.

On roofs which are strongly exposed to the wind it is advisable to hook them in to the substrate very lightly a few millimetres so they are not blown off the roof.

After sowing the shoots, the whole roof should be heavily watered so that the substrate is completely saturated.

For 1 m² green roof we recommend using 100-150g sedum shoots.

Shallow -rooted plants

The shallow-rooted plants are the most used plants with green roof. Through their long cultivation time and stronger habitus they offer a very good stress toleration. We deliver them in multiple numbers with 54 plants. We recommend a plant density of 12-15 plants per square meter.
