It's a basic Saltillo Tile. The tile was not sealed before "grouting" so the tile absorbed some of the "red quarry clay" grout.

I love these plant colors - Do you suppose in West Virginia, I could plant Pride of Madeira as an annual, and save seeds?

Lori I have no information on growing from seed. Pride of Madeira needs a Mediterranean Climate.

bougainvillea is native to South America, i think? so a desert environment would be ideal for it to grow. i dont know about the other plant but it is spectacular!!:)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pride of Madeira (Echium candicans) is a purple showstopper that blends easily with the hot pinks of bougainvillea in tropical gardens.
Link the house and garden with strong colors. If anything shouts baroque, the simple yet stunning planting against the complementary coloring of this house does.We can see how the yellow again creates the buffer between the strong colors of the mauve Pride of Madeira (Echium candicans), the cerise bougainvillea and the dark-purple porch woodwork.
