Semi-Intensive Green Roof “Wildflower” – a Versatile Vegetation with Great Ecological Benefits

“Wildflower” is the ideal build-up for a visually appealing semi-intensive Green Roof with medium maintenance requirements. Precultivated wildflower mats normally used for planting provide an attractive mixture of wildflowers, herbs and flowering perennials and a prolonged flowering period from April to September. The flowering height can range from 30 to100 cm depending on the substrate depth and the maintenance cycle. The wildflower vegetation attracts a wide range of pollinating insects and birds providing great ecological benefit.

Technical Data
Build-up height ca. 170 mm
Weight, saturated ca. 200 kg/m²
Water retention capacity ca. 73 l/m²
