    Hi David! I really like your work. I was wondering if you would please tell me the name of the small green bushes in front of the loropetalum. Thank you!

    As you are inquiring about the name of the plants in the middle, they are called DYNAMITE crepe myrtle. They are many types of Crepe Myrtle. The ones in the middle are called Dynamite Crepe Myrtle.

    The pink flowering trees, they are Crepe Myrtles.

    Are you referring to the Crepe Myrtle trees (red flowers)? No, they would not be good in your area.

    I know there is a variety of crepe Myrtles that can grow in a hardy zone of 6 but not the original Crepes. The one variety is called red rockets and not as pretty.

    Trying to create a similar area in my backyard. About how many feet across for the arch and how far between the crepe myrtles? Hard to tell distances from a picture and want to allow enough room for the trees when mature. Also how far from the fence line to plant the closest crepe myrtle? I'm planning to place a bench or garden swing on the grass in front of the arched area. It will be my favorite reading spot. Thank you for the inspiration! I can hardly wait until it's finished.

    The circumference of the arch is about 15 feel with the crepes planted on 5' centers and about 3 feet from the fence for the closest. I hope this helps. It's all relative to the amount of space that you actually have. This is a big garden. Here is another look at it.

    These trees (Crepe Myrtle) were part of the original landscaping for this project and we re-purposed them to the spot you see in the photo.

    They are crepe myrtles which we inherited from the existing garden. They transplant very easily so that is what we did to accentuate our lovely semi circle.

    It is not symmetrical. The pool is located just beyond what you can see in this photo. I cannot recall the dimensions, but it is a very large back yard.

    Beautiful backyard, I think this is a creeping vine. Flowering vines are employed in landscape design with both aesthetic and utilitarian purposes in mind. While trees and shrubs can certainly create a living barrier within your yard, creatively placed vines can also give you that feeling of privacy as well as enhance the beauty of your home.
