Located on the doorstep of Buckingham Palace, the wall reaches over 21 metres high and is packed with over 20 seasonal plant species including buttercups, crocuses, strawberries, lavender, spring bulbs, and winter geraniums. The flowers have been chosen to ensure the wall is ‘in-bloom’ all year round. Affectionately nicknamed ‘The Green Lungs of Victoria’, the wall boasts significant environmental benefits, such as improving the air quality for those working in and passing through the area and attracting much-needed wildlife such as bees, butterflies and birds. It is also London’s largest living wall dedicated to reducing the risk of urban flooding, which is a challenge in the Victoria area, due to the low absorbency of urban surfaces. The wall will also be a tourist landmark, brightening the popular walk from Victoria station to the Royal residence.
