Several of these have long stems. There is a Red Hot Poker and Euphorbia characias subsp. wulfenii.

Jeff we planted Italian cypress but want to remove them because they are very bare at the bottom. How do you prevent that from happening? Thanks!

It totally depends on your sun, soil, water and growing season. But you could expect 5 feet to grow in ideal conditions 1 - 5 months. Thanks for the interest!

Thanks Ronique. I looked at the link and saw a bit more of an orange. Could it look so different in a picture ?

Whips and chains. This plant is sometimes known as the S&M plant. Kidding! To train it use fine clippers and gloves because it has some nice thorns on it. Good luck if you are into pain. ;) Thanks for the interest.

Yes I hear it can we very invasive get into cracks in the stucco. We opted to go with a trellis (old wrought iron gate) with bougainvillea to cover our bare wall. It is very pretty but the bougainvillea can also bring on the pain. Lol. Thanks for your response.

What can I do to protect my patio furniture and outdoor cushions?

Ronique Gibson
When you say 'protect' are you meaning from the elements? From sun exposure, or from soil?

To protect against harsh sun exposure, it is best to remove cushions when not using them as fabrics can fade, especially darker ones.

To protect from dirt consider using lawn furniture covers when not in use. (These could also be used to protect against the sun- but some fading could still occur)

To clean cushions, use a mild detergent/water and a coarse brush to remove dirt and then let air dry outside.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This landscape design's garden arches and pathways remind me of the Chateau's Garden Cottages, which are grouped around a courtyard adjacent to the pool.
Frank Organ added this to Climbing Plants Suit Small Gardens
This garden exemplifies a good use of the two main groups of plants that can be used to cover and decorate walls. Wall shrubs, such as the Pyracantha forming the dramatic garden archway, tend to be slower growing than the other group — the climbers. Climbers can be divided into free climbers, such as ivy, that use aerial roots to self-attach, and clingy climbers, such as clematis, which need some sort of exterior support (like a trellis) to cling to with their tendrils or leaves.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Use Yellow Ocher
A more muted version of the color with a red tile roof adds instant Mediterranean cred.
