Supplied ready-to-roll-out as an instant vegetation layer, with the plants established and growing in a strong felt made from recycled textiles.
Our 100% Wildflower Mat is a mix of native wildflower and flowering perennials growing in a moisture retentive biodegradable felt mat to provide the appearance of a true wildflower meadow on a roof. The mixture is ideal to complement the local habitat or to replace the habitat lost by the footprint of the building.
The mixture consists of 20 species of drought tolerant native wildflowers including cowslip, lady’s bedstraw, meadow buttercup, red campion, self heal, yarrow and yellow rattle mixed with flowering perennials. Flowering is over a prolonged period (March until October) creating visual interest and offering an excellent habitat for insects, butterflies and birds. The plants need a full cut in late autumn, removing all the cuttings.
