Bougainvillea is one of the showiest vines you can grow. The large plant practically smothers itself in big clusters of papery bracts. These bracts appear in bold shades of pink, lavender, red, gold, or orange and create a display you can see a block away. While bougainvillea is tropical, it's usually grown as an annual in cold-winter areas.
Garden Connection. A deck and pergola stretch across the back of the house, where planters and flower-filled hanging baskets bring the garden closer
Arbors can work in tandem with paths to establish a defined entry point. Here, the informality of the structure is reinforced by round pavers and gravel. Plants spill over the borders of the pathway for a sweet, cottage-style garden. Curves can either be traditional or casual; this arbor relies on a gentle swoop overhead. A robust vine rambles up and over the arbor.

A pergola helps define the gathering space and provides climbing plants the perfect spot to latch on. Surround the space with outdoor lights to ensure it can be used during the day and at night.
