The living wall at Caledonian Road & Barnsbury Overground is filling in with growth! Ferns such as polypodium vulgare trap particles and improve air quality along the platform, while heuchra caramel, lime, and palace purple provide year round color and flowers that attract bees during the spring and summer.

You'll also find Stachys byzantina, known as Lamb's Ear for its shape and soft texture. It's commonly grown for children's gardens and its leaves were historically used as wound dressings.

 

 

 

 

All these plants will keep filling out the wall, so be sure to visit next time you're at the station!
