Plantings by the Pool
What a delightful summer it has been here in California and the pool seems to be at the right temperature. It is not heated. The flowers seem to be holding up with limited watering and the Coleus topiary are still growing strong. Coleus is a native of the Tropics and likes its' feet wet and lots of indirect sun. The leaves are beautiful colors and work well with my Sunbrella Trax/Persimmon fabric. We basically have a green garden and the pop of color helps.
