What is an ideal place to plant tibushina shade or sun
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
AMS Landscape Design Studios, Inc.
The Tibouchina works best in part sun conditions. This of course depends on your climate. In hotter areas, it would do better in a fairly shady area, while in somewhat cooler areas, it can be in full sun. It should be sheltered somewhat even though its USDA Hardiness Zone: 10 - 11

Monrovia states: 'Prefers sheltered locations in courtyards, walled or fenced entry gardens, or planters in the niches of architecture. Particularly lovely when planted against light-colored stucco walls for contrast'.

Hope this helps!

plz tell me the name of the purple flowering plant and the climbers
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
AMS Landscape Design Studios, Inc.
The common name is: Princess Flower (sometimes called the glory bush)
The Botanical name is: Tibouchina urvilleana (sometimes called Tibouchina semidecandra)

The princess flower, glory bush, or lasiandra, is a sprawling, evergreen shrub or small ornamental tree native to Brazil and ranges from 10 to 15 feet (20 feet with proper training) in height. It can be trimmed to any size and still put on a vivid, year-long flower display. The dark green, velvety, four to six-inch-long leaves have several prominent longitudinal veins instead of the usual one, and are often edged in red. Large, royal purple blossoms, flaring open to five inches, are held on terminal panicles above the foliage, creating a spectacular sight when in full bloom. Some flowers are open throughout the year but they are especially plentiful from May to January. Princess-Flower is ideal for the mixed shrubbery border or used in small groupings to compound the impact of bloom-time.

They are somewhat tender and here in Southern California, they do best in mixed sun, to some shade, but it flowers best in sun.

Hope this helps!

There's actually a tag on the photo that lists them as Princess Flower,
Tibouchina urvilleana. Hope that helps!

Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Yard: Are You Ready to Lose the Lawn?
Another alternative to straight-laid bricks, this chevron pattern increases the aesthetics and makes this space quite charming.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Pavers for the Perfect Patio and Path
When shopping for pavers, keep in mind that the color of concrete pavers can change over time. Pavers dyed at the surface will wear, while those with color all the way through will last longer. Also, pay attention to the finish of the pavers. How rough is it? Is there friction? How much texture is visible? Brick pavers, for example, have a smooth surface, but can be slippery in wet and shady areas.
The sound of water and rhythm of plantings and fountains border a path through a central tall entry pavilion. The courtyard is intentionally set up as a place of movement, rather than static occupation.
