Living walls are a 'thing' of the moment (i.e. now and in recent years) and seems set to continue for awhile. I like the concept of it although I must confess I don't always like the finished product, from both professionals and amateurs, even if at first they look impeccable. Plus I still have lots of doubts on the longevity of most of them.
This living wall however, I liked a lot...
Whilst walking around Geneva Botanical Garden we came across the boundary wall that separates the garden from the railway tracks on the other side of the wall.
It seems they are not ones to miss a planting opportunity. Plus rather than leave it as a stark wall why not embellish it with greenery?
|Complete with plant labels|
Most of the planting are leafy drought tolerant plants and alpines. However, much to my pleasant amusement I spotted something different amongst them...
