Hieracium maculatum

Hieracium maculatum  - Kat Harrold

Hieracium maculatum is a great green roof plant for full to part shade green roofs.  Soft hairs on the leaves help it adapt to dry sunny locations as well.  Plants less than a year old may require extra attention in areas of full sun during extreme heat and drought conditions.  Given proper nutrients and water this herbaceous plant is repeat bloomer and can provide a spray of bright yellow flowers from early to late summer.

Hieracium maculatum may be grown on a green roof either from plugs or seeds.  It is best suited for extensive to semi-intensive green roofs.

The notable thing about all these organizations is that their mandate of sustainability It's always good to see an article that encourages the building of green roofs, but it would be great if the various projects is related to green roof .
