Tulbaghia looks great in borders. I am using it along with Nerium oleanders and euphorbias. They all bloom in intense heat.....

A vining shrub. I think it's Tecoma capensis. I have transplanted this three times just the past year! I think I'm finally happy with it's location now since it is blooming after all this abuse.
