On the left in the first pot: many clematis, purple hyacinth bean vines, Aphrodite Rose of Sharon Athela, small green/gold ground cover. The pot in the pond is my bog garden with papyrus, snake plant, calla lily, var asparagus, fox tail, taro, cardinal flower, bush from lake. Behind the pond are cannas, root beer plant.

I love the double red althea. It is a gorgeous color. I understand why you love your garden angel. She is wonderful.

Always Growing

How pretty, love the arbor and angel!
If you want something to quickly cover the arbor, try a hummingbird (aka cardinal climber) vine. The will grow from seed and cover it within a year. They are annual, but reseed themselves and come back from year to year; they do well in the Tx heat.
