    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!

    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!

    What color brick is framing the walkway and what color bricks are used for the herringbone design. Also what color grout for both. Thanks

    An Italian Cypress tree is a similar looking tree for a second option.

    My guess is they got them from a company called Fountains Unique - I think it is their Bologna spout. I learned about this company from a photo on Houzz where AMS was kind enough to provide the name of the supplier. I purchased two spouts from them and I can't say enough good things about Tony Wyatt and the valuable advice he shared to help me choose and install the spouts. You'll find Fountain Unique among the pros here on Houzz and their website is

        What Houzz contributors are saying:

        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.

        Vanessa Brunner added this to Pavers for the Perfect Patio and PathAug 7, 2011

        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.

        Another alternative to straight-laid bricks, this chevron pattern increases the aesthetics and makes this space quite charming.
