Arch Green Man

The Arch

The entrance to our garden is rather open, and to give it some focus we installed this rose arch.

Unfortunately roses fare rather badly in our garden - not enough light and a very high water table - so we trained Hyacinth Beans and Morning Glory to grow up the arch.

This picture was taken in early summer. By late summer the whole arch was a mass of dark green leaves and purple blooms which later turned to bright purple seed pods intermingled with the Morning Glory flowers.

Very effective.
