There are a few options depending on how permanent you want the solution. You could plant shading trees, bushes and plants that are tall enough to provide you with shade.


You could build an arbor, trellis or and architectural structure that provides semi-shading, or grow climbing plants like wisteria, ivy, etc around the arch. elements to provide shade.


a more temporary solution could be table umbrellas, awnings, or clever uses of fabric shades made by company's like Sunbrella.

That's bougainvillea. It comes in a number of colors, including white, pink, purple, and orange, but that purple-red in the photo is the most common.
