Red miniature rose vine (google image) it's suppose to flower all through the season, so fingers crossed. I opted for this vine because it's very light weight. The arbor is not very strong or steady, so hopefully this arrangement should work out.

Fantastic..... really creative. Enjoyed going through the whole thread. What does the garden look like now? Though not very pertinent to your case but might get a few ideas here.... :)

Thank you sir. There's is still plenty to be done to make the patio presentable. I'll admit to being lazy, and slagging off for a while. But, I'm back to finishing off this project now. I'll post pictures along the way.

Have mixed gravel with white marble chips for the path inside the arbor. Have ordered some sleeper tiles to go on the gravel to finish off the look. Also planted a miniature rose bush to be trained up the arbor. I think it's called 'Red Cascade'
Brunfelsia is planted infront of the rose vine.
The small stone effect fountain you see in the picture is for decorative purpose only. Doesn't really work. I have ordered an urn bubble fountain as a water feature. It will be delivered on 9th June inshallah.

Took Sir Arif's advice and planted some red lilies around the mango tree. These are red lilies which were already there in the old flower bed. Can anyone tell me it's name? That's it for now. I'll share more posts when some progress has been made. The goal is to finish off this project before Ramzan inshallah.
