MEMBER PROFILE

A GIANT OF THE
SEDUM WORLD

BY DARCY DRYSDALE, GRP, GREEN ROOF ACCOUNT MANAGER, ETERA

With their colorful blooms and foliage, low maintenance requirements and
drought tolerance, Sedums continue to be the plant family of choice for most
extensive green roofs. One of the industry giants is West Coast based Etera®.

S

edums can be delivered
onto a green roof as
mats that resemble sod,
individual plugs or even as
premixed cuttings ready to be
broadcast and take root more
effectively than seeds. "Our Pacific Northwest climate has mild
temperatures and low humidity
and is ideal for growing our
more than 30 species of ground
cover Sedums with the most
vibrant foliage colors," said Michael Wisshack, Etera National
Sales Manager. "In 2015, Etera
doubled its stock production
from 60 to 120 acres to keep
up with growing demand from
across North America and even
Europe," he added.

Etera has sold over
3.5 million square feet of
their pre-vegetated SEDUM
TILE® mat since 2010 and
last year produced over
900,000 lbs of Sedum cuttings
both for their own production
and to sell to other green roof
product producers and installers. Sedums are shipped across
North America on refrigerated
trucks or by air to ensure they
arrive on site in excellent
condition.
Customers can order
custom mixes of bulk Sedum,
have custom mixes grown as
SEDUM TILE mats, or order
Sedum or perennials plugs
suitable for green roofs such

as Allium, Fragaria or Achillea.
Custom mixed SEDUM TILE
mats with perennials grown
into them are a favorite with
designers. A large on-hand inventory of SEDUM TILE mats
designed for maximum color are
available year-round from Etera.
Unlike the Midwest and East
Coast, green roof projects install
year-round on the West Coast.
Etera's three separate
production facilities located in
Western and Eastern Washington State and Northern
California offer different
climates and allow for a wider
range of green roof plant
options. It also allows them to
trial new varieties for specific

climates and regions and offers
production capabilities on a
huge scale. "Our goal is to
constantly improve and refine
our production techniques
and increase green roof plant
options in challenging regions,"
Wisshack added.
An exclusive tour of the
Mount Vernon production
facility in the beautiful
Skagit Valley will be held
on September 21st as part
of CitiesAlive Green Roof and
Wall Conference in Seattle!
