This is an Abutilon Hybrid. This job was installed a number of years ago so not sure on the cultivar but may be "Halo"

Amy Renea added this to Make the Most of a Small Garden
Think up when you are in a small space. Trellises, arbors and pergolas are great for creating more growing space.More on vertical gardening
Tiffany Carboni added this to 3 Essential Elements of an Artful Garden Path
The other issue of comfort is stability. You simply can’t ask people to walk on a stepping-stone path that’s wobbling. It’s disconcerting and potentially dangerous.

n average distance is 36 inches from the center of one stone to the center of the next stone, Ayers says. The gaps between stones should usually be no more than 4 inches. The actual distance may differ depending on who the path is for: A tall, athletic person, for example, will likely have a different stride length than someone more petite.
