More green roof plants

August 17, 2011 at 9:42 pm (Uncategorized)

Don’t have any pictures (yet) but Kyle Bolenbaugh, Brenna Wanous, Dorothy Tuthill and I transplanted 130 more plants of 7 different species on the Berry Biodiversity Conservation Building green roof yesterday afternoon. The species were:

Silene acaulis

Erigeron pinnatisectus

Artemisia pedatifida

Eriogonum ovalifolium

Draba oligosperma

Aquilegia laramiensis

Artemisia nova.

I grew these from seeds started this past March. Pix to come….

    Karen,

    Would there ever be a opportunity to plant a garden in the College of Ag and Natural Resoruces courtyards? Now that the pigeons are few, it could be a nice people hang-out area. I dont’ know if the soil is good or if there is enough sunlight but it certainly would improve my view.

      Hi Mary Kay,
      That would be a great idea! I actually did put in some plants 8 or 10 years ago but I’m not certain many of them survived. Some color in there would sure help. I hardly ever see anybody in the courtyards and I don’t know if they’re even accessible anymore.
