There has been some sunshine as New Lanark Roof Garden relaxes into its mellow late summer phase. The buddleia is in flower at last, its rich purple spikes curving over to invite bees and butterflies to land on its densely packed florets and feed. Here, the variety of buddleia is named ‘Harlequin’ and has attractive green leaves edged with white. The lavender is also a favourite with the bees. Colour contrasts are created by the anemones – the purple ones against the clear white of the Japanese anemone ‘Honorine Jobert’. Make sure you visit New Lanark Roof Garden this autumn!
