The Pleasant Playground Rec Building green roof in Germantown Philadelphia has made a full recovery and is flourishing after this exceptionally harsh winter. The only species that didn’t survive was the Ice Plant or Delosoerma, a succulent that we have used in green roofs on the past in limited quantities as an accent. All sedum species (Coral carpet, Sexangular, Angelina, Acre) as well as Creeping Thyme, have all come back and are growing profusely. The green roof was installed in late October 2013 and went into dormancy almost immediately for the winter. However, since the roof was pre-grown the plants were established enough to insure winter survival.
