Green Roof Progress

Different flowers bloom at different times on the roof, so we go up every week or so to check on it. Here's how the flora changed over a three week period. 

April 18 - lots of bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush
April 24 - most of the bluebonnets went to seed, and now pink primrose and plains coreopsis dominate. Dr. Medrano from the biology department was also with us. 
May 2 - pink primroses are fading, lemon mint are beginning to bloom
We'll continue monitoring the progress on the roof throughout the summer until all the flowering plants die back, then we'll cut down any tall grasses or flowers so that we can reseed in the fall.
