Plant Catalog

Welcome to our online plant catalog!

The Preferred Plants link to the left showcases our core list of the most reliable and versatile extensive green roof plants that we carry.  These are the plants that have been proven across a broad range of hardiness zones, geographical areas, and roofing systems.  The Full Catalog listing includes all the plants we currently grow.

Over the years, Emory Knoll Farms has tested several hundred varieties of plants. As we continue to evaluate plant performance on green roofs over time, we will continue to add new plants to our inventory.

A Note on Taxonomy and Botanical Nomenclature

As more botanical research is completed, plants are often reclassified into different ranks, causing their names to change.  As a horticultural business, we do endeavor to keep up with the latest taxonomic changes, and try to show these changes in a user friendly way.   We express fairly recent changes in nomenclature by listing both names.  The older – usually more recognizable – name is listed first, and then the new name is listed as a synonym.  For example, Talinum calycinum syn. Phemeranthus calycinus.
