Stone crop is the featured ingredient found in several Eminence Organics award-winning products, like Stone Crop Gel Wash, Stone Crop Hydrating Mist, Stone Crop Serum and Stone Crop Hydrating Gel. But what exactly is so amazing about this plant? We were hoping you’d ask!
1: Great For The Environment
Stone crop is often used on environmentally-friendly green roofs because the sturdy succulents rarely attract pests and are resistant to disease or weather conditions. They are easy to plant, don’t have a deep root system and thrive in a variety of environments.
On a hot summer day, a typical urban flat roof can reach temperatures in excess of 90°F – a major contributor to the heat island effect in cities. Green roofs, on the other hand, are much closer to the temperature of the outside air. They also absorb rainwater so it doesn’t become stormwater which causes erosion and pollution. Green roofs are a beautiful way to take care of the earth.
2: Provides Food For Bees & Butterflies
The flowers of stone crop perennials are rich with sweet nectar, attracting bees, moths and butterflies.The colors range but are usually in the pastel family, adding a soft burst of color to your gardenscape. Flowers can remain on the plants well into early winter, adding dimension and interest to the succulents even as they dry. Growing stone crop is a wonderful way to nurture bees and butterflies for most of the year!
