Steal this Look – Rustic Italian

Agave, Boston Ivy, Gravel, Italian, Rhododendron, Steal this Look, Wisteria

While searching some older magazines I came across this image of a Italian courtyard.The garden is located outside Milan Italy and does not look like a typical Italian (Tuscan) garden. I am an advocate for covering garden walls/homes with ivy and climbers to provide additional interest to your garden. Here are some details if you like this look and would like to recreate with the same plants (plus a few tips).
Happy Planting!
