Why didn't I think of that?
Big Mistake!!

Where I live -

I planted a Tibouchina tree beside the water tank.  It has started to grow and I keep waiting for the flowers to die down to trim it.

Problem is it just keeps flowering.

I hope it stops flowering soon because these trees can grow up to 10 metres and I need to trim it back.

It is planted just off the back verandah over the railing from the BBQ.  I put it in to cut out the western sun when we eat and entertain out there.  I don't think we will need to worry about the sun.

I planted another at one of my old schools back in 2006.  It was all concrete in that part of the yard.  Now it is a great place to sit and that tree fills the space.
