    Hello, we really like your blog and garden. Can you suggest a tree or shrub near a pool that can provide shade and overcome the 50 degrees temperature of kuwait and strong sun, other than palm trees. Many thanks.

      Hi Haya, thanks for your encouragement. Much appreciated.

      I particularly like Plumerias by the pool. Not only can they provide a nice shade when grown, but the beautiful scent of their flowers in the early evening is also stunning!

      Its leaves and flowers are quite big too, so they’re easy to pick up and won’t clog the filter.
