Green Roofs and Crimson Clover - Day Three Leaves

Green Roof Plants Trifolium spp.  Day Three
Sowing Crimson Clover, Trifolium incarnatum, will help keep the green roof really green because Crimson Clover is a nitrogen fixing species - or green manure crop.

Day Three of the sprouting produced a significant increase in the number of initial dicot leaves.  The roof is turning green in three days!

We will be posting daily photos of the clover as it grows on the roof.

As always, email your questions.

Happy Green Roofing, Kevin
