Lindum Wildflower Mat

Lindum Wildflower Mat

Lindum Wildflower Mat is a taller growing mix of native wildflowers and flowering perennials growing in a moisture retentive biodegradable felt mat to provide the appearance of a true wildflower meadow on a roof.

The mixture is ideal to complement the local habitat or to replace the habitat lost by the footprint of the building.

The mixture consists of  20 species of drought tolerant native wildflowers including Cowslip, Lady’s Bedstraw, Meadow Buttercup, Red Campion, Self Heal, Yarrow and Yellow Rattle, mixed with flowering perennials.  Flowering is over a prolonged period (from April until September) creating visual interest and offering an excellent habitat for insects, butterflies and birds.

Height of plants when flowering is 40-80cm. The plants need a full cut in late autumn, removing all the cuttings.

Lindum Wildflower Mat requires a minimum substrate depth of 75mm
