Green Roof Saturday
Green Roof on their gazebo
(Joe Fudge, Daily Press / September 24, 2009)
Charles Martino , Operations Manager for Cooke’s Gardens stands under the green roof on their gazebo at Williamsburg Botanical Garden in James City County….
The garden is a “green roof” of 250 sedums planted on top of an outdoor pavilion. This fall the sedums are at their peak, covering the 200-square-foot roof with lush greenery. Prolific bloomers like ice plant and portulaca add more splashes of color. All are… succulent(s).
As usual, rather than read the article all the way through to figure out where this Williamsburg in James City County is, I’ll do a lovely little internet search, this time using answers.com – and we have Virginia. No surprise there. I was hoping for Utah, but it wasn’t to be.
