    No, it is called Abutilon or the common name is flowering maple (but it is not a maple)

    Oh yes, sorry, and you are absolutely right. It is what we always called flowering maple.

    Love the pergola, something else beautiful is a metal decorative top that gives great shading

    7. Add a structure. Pergolas and arbors help define an area of the garden for a specific use, such as relaxing in the shade or enjoying a morning cup of coffee. In a small garden, adding a structure creates a different environment in a space that could otherwise feel monotonous. Here, a curved wooden arbor provides light shade and an attractive canopy for a small seating area.

    The other issue of comfort is stability. You simply can’t ask people to walk on a stepping-stone path that’s wobbling. It’s disconcerting and potentially dangerous.

    Think up when you are in a small space. Trellises, arbors and pergolas are great for creating more growing space.More on vertical gardening
