Native Plants for Green Roofs

Vertical Landscape Architects Inc. will use native plants in an upcoming green roof installation in Toronto. Native Plants are more resilient to extreme temperature swings on green roofs than some non-natives and provide optimal habitat and food for indigenous species. Native plants can be selected to meet the various conditions on a green roof (sun, shade, moist, dry) and provide all season visual interest as well as lovely colour and texture variation. The picture below is of the native plantings at Grand Moraine Growers in Alma, Ontario.
