Green Roof Plants / September 18, 2013

Green Roof PlantsBrilliant magenta flowers bloom in late summer and will last into the early autumn month.

Also known as Pink Carpet, this low-growing succulent will spread quickly, creating generous ground cover. A part of the Aizoaceae family, this dwarf perennial plant is native to South Africa.

Very drought tolerant and growing only four to five inches tall, it flourished best in hardiness zones six through ten.

Preferably planted in more arid climates, Pink Carpet won’t tolerate soggy soils. The winter foliage ranges from yellow-green to an orange toned bronze color.
