Do you train the bouganvilla in that shape? Never seen one quite like that. Great color too.

I asked for photos and you supplied!
What a koinki dink!

I LOVE those petunias. Love that coral color!!! Va va VOOM!

Bougainvillea is sold an annual for gosh sakes. But until I get my gigantic "Dream Greenhouse", I am not buying any. I plan on growing a Bougainvillaea that grows all the way up to the ceiling and arching over, where it will remain year round. I will place a little table and chairs out there where I can sit and have my morning coffee in the winter while looking out into the snow. Well, that's my dream. Found just the one too. Only $6,000 with everything and they haul it and set it up too! Might as well be a million.
Anyway, I can just look at your pictures and enjoy.

DH trains it that way,in fact it's about ready for a haircut.He does some of our hibiscus the same way.

The guy across the street is training a purple potato bush the same way,dh showed him how.

Glad you all enjoyed the pics,and as you did I guess you figured out I finally got PB to co-operate with me.LOL

One of the prettiest bougainvilleas I ever saw was at the zoo in Brownsville, TX. It was purple and went up a light pole and across the street.
When I was visiting family in AZ she showed me how to open the burglar bars in the bedroom. I told her it would have to be one hellious fire for me to go out that window. When she asked why, I told here there was no way I would crawl through that bougainvillea. She had to laugh as it was as tall as the house and wider than the picture window.
Diane has a pink and white bougie trained as a standard. From a distance the flowers look like sweet peas.

Did you mean the pot in the 2nd picture?? If so no they aren't one piece,there of 4 of them and they lock together,so each one overhangs the one below it.I have 2 sets of them.
