Carolina Stonecrops, Inc. grows wholesale Stonecrop plants and
prevegetated modules for the greenroof industry. Our nursery is located
in western NC in a zone 7 climate. We offer 2 dozen species of plants
that have proven to be robust and require low maintenance in greenroof
applications. With some notice we will acquire additional species for
special projects. Products are:
Rooted plugs - Normally we have 1500 trays in inventory of
popular species in standard 1.5” diameter x 3” plugs. If species are
out of stock about 2 months are required to produce plugs. For
custom orders we will mix species in the plug trays. Heated
greenhouses allow us to grow plugs late fall and early spring. We
have our own “mother plant” stock but do not offer cuttings.
Prevegetated modules - These modules radically reduce the
time and labor to install a finished greenroof. We have an inventory
of grown modules for smaller jobs and will custom grow to
specification for projects. An irrigated area suitable for growing
3000 2’x2’ modules is located near our 6 greenhouses.
Delivery of plugs is inexpensive
and done with our van and trailer (capacity -700 trays on racks).
Prevegetated modules weigh about 70 pounds each and are palletized 20-24
to a pallet and shipped by flatbed tractor trailer. Packaged shipment of
smaller quantities of plugs is also available.
Philosophy - Most greenroofs have limited accessibility and
therefore get very low amounts of planned maintenance. Our job is to get
feedback from installer/maintainer groups on which species grow best in
each area and make the information available to our customers.
Consulting on plants and plant problems is free. We also offer a
maintenance manual to all customers.
