The arctostaphylos ‘Emerald Carpet’ is a rich green Manzanita groundcover that has the prettiest tiny white flowers in the spring. It is a strong plant that will be placed around the perimeter of the Hedgegate living roof in order to flow over the edges eventually to create the hanging effect. Similarly I am planning them to line the “holes” in the lower green roof of the Hedgegate residence to hang down along the perimeter of the edges of the roof openings.
The other factor I’m looking at with the emerald carpet is the contract in colour with the silver grey of the Coast Buckwheat and the Blue Fescue, as well as the difference in texture. The variety of texture and colour is not meant to be overwhelming, but a balanced composition of varieties of plant species while creating the pleasure of simplicity.
I’m looking for a subtle composition and therefore the varieties of texture and colour all play a role without looking too busy or complicated. The emerald carpet has a complexity of leaf structure that is ornate, strong in character and consistent with the dark green colour, therefore providing interest with 2 plugs per sodpodmod.
