Pleached Rose Bed - Fall


A Burford holly topiary centers the row of arches. Training of the tallest central-arch was only just begun in the spring of this photo. Now two years later, the arch is so hefty that the fence-top is hidden in green. The autumn-red foliage belongs to crape myrtles that have suckered up from the yard behind our fence. A species purple lantana and its white cultivar drape down between two Stachys. The faint yellow dots are of the autumn blooming Mexican mint marigold (Tagetes lucida) which have since matured to fuller clumps, making for a nice yellow, lavender and white autumn scene.
