Sedum is an easy plant, also known as stonecrop because of the greasy leaves. The plant has the property to absorb and store water well – this means it can also thrive in drier periods. The flowers of sedum plants are a magnet for butterflies and bees.
Twelve kinds of sedums are used in the standard sedum mix mat. The wildflower mat has different wildflowers and ornamental grasses and the bee and butterfly mat is a combination of sedum, different types of ornamental grasses, and a mix of forty perennials and herbs. These plants are essential for butterflies and bees.
The sedum mats have a dry weight of 40 to 55 kilograms per square meter (including substrate roll and drainage). When it is saturated with water, it is 65 kilograms. It is possible to install the mats on roofs with an angle of up to 10 degrees.
