Sedum is an extremely adaptable plant. Its special properties include: -
Low Maintenance– once established sedum forms a tightly knit sedum carpet, which allows little room for the wwwelopment of weeds and can be left largely unattended. This makes it perfect for use on sedum roofs.
Low Growing– sedum is a low growing plant, which generally reaches a height of 2cm to 5cm (up to 10cm when in flower). It does not become overgrown and does not require regular cutting or pruning – ideal when used on a sedum roof.
Colourful Hues– by mixing a number of different varieties of sedum together Sedum Supply achieve a sedum turf which has a beautiful mix of colours (greens, yellows, reds and purples) and textures. As an evergreen it continues to provide a changing display of colour throughout the winter months. When used to create a sedum roof it will provide a beautifully changing display throughout the year.
These properties mean sedum is particularly useful for use in out of the way and difficult to reach environments as once laid it will not require regular attention. It is therefore regularly used on sedum roofs, roundabouts, road verges, central reservations and embankments.
