Traditionally, green roofs have been utilized in climates with more humidity than ours. Our Green Roof is a testing ground to determine performance and suitability of plants for green roof use in our semi-arid climate. Rather than use traditional green roof plants, the Green Roof, which was installed in fall 2007, showcases over 100 species of native and drought tolerant plants. Here is a list, including photos, of most of the plants on the Green Roof.
This Green Roof was the first publicly accessible green roof in the city of Denver.
