Abstract
Because of their easy implementation and low maintenance, extensive green roofs have become established during the last few decades as one of the best options for integrating vegetation on the built environment. The success of these systems involves having of a plant species palette well adapted to extreme conditions, especially in drought environments. Among the available ones, the Sedum genus has stood out due to its tolerance to climate extreme conditions and its use has been widespread throu...
