BMI Canopia Sedum Plug Plants are intended for use as an aesthetic covering designed to provide the perfect low maintenance solution for extensive green roof systems. These succulent plants are drought, wind and frost tolerant and will steadily colonize the roof area, to providing an even vegetative cover over time.
The sedum family of flowering plants is large, and widespread throughout the Northern Hemisphere, varying from annual and creeping herbs to shrubs. They are succulents and therefore have leaves which are able to store water.
BMI Canopia Sedum Plug Plants are pre-cultivated plants grown from UK provenance seed stock. The plants are propagated and germinated in recycled crushed brick sedum substrate in a controlled environment ensuring stronger plant growth and development. Plugs are nurtured in UK nurseries which ensures the plants are already fully acclimatised for UK installation.
They are supplied in trays of 84 plugs. Around 8 - 12 different species are incorporated allowing flowering of different colours at varying times throughout the summer and early autumn period.

One single-or-multi layer extensive green roofs up to approximately 250 mm layer thickness.
The plants planted each day are to be watered thoroughly on the same day, i.e. the substrate layer must be completely saturated with water to stimulate root formation, (usually the case if the water is clearly draining out). It is recommended to contract out completion care in the performance contract and, where applicable, agree development and/or maintenance care.
The delivered plug plants can be stored in a cool, shady place in the original packaging for around 3 days, including transport times. After this, the pallets should be unpacked in a cool, shady place with the plant trays laid out and kept moderately damp.
