We are located in Dallas Fort Worth. We hard a very harsh winter and that meant the color was going to be pretty hard as well. We installed 3500 begonias and they all didnt take very well. So we replaced all the color and this is two weeks after. Currently the apartment wasnt 100% excited about the change. Im confused but oh well. I know it looks good. Previously Majestic Lawn and Landscape and I partnered up so this is our work.

Man, that looks great! The property office must have really wanted those begonias bad. The fountain grass and the salvia contrast nicely.

I love Ipomea, what a great plant. Are those recent pictures? Our Fountain grass doesn't bloom till fall here. I wish our Zinnias would do that well here, its just too hot once you get over 115 for anything but Vinca and Portulaca and a few others. So I end up using a lot of perennials as summer color like Lantana's and Bougs. Nice work.

Very nice stuff there! I like the contrasting colors and textures in the beds... And fountain grass is definitely one of the coolest perennials.

Those are recent pictures. Went by today and it looks even better. The purple foutain grass is going well but we have a lot of water on them. Its honestly crazy to me why these people dont love the color change. Begonias are great but they only go so far.

Looks wild, I like the color contrast. Those are sweet potato vines correct? The leaves are a little different from our variation down here. They get outta hand fast though. Good job!

Potato vine is cool, but is too much maintenance for my liking.

We have landscape begonias that are year round, but need protection in the summer as they will fry if in full sun. They are one of my fav. plants due to the flower and leaves and are low on the maintenance end.

I like the colors a lot! looks great.

BTW, Vincas are a great summer annual. I used a few colors at a clients house this year and they are doing awesome. It's a nice change from coleus and caladiums.
