Our Gracie Modern Arbor is gracing the pages of this month's Sunset Magazine and we couldn't be more thrilled!
"Anything but ordinary, this circular trellis is a sculpture you can walk through. In Sunset’s test garden, our “moon gate” entrance to veggie beds is also an ideal support for scarlet runner beans. Vine-covered or bare, it makes a big statement. The rustproof steel hoop measures 80 inches across and comes in seven vivid colors (we chose Kumquat). Each structure is handcrafted in Los Angeles by a sculpture and design studio."
Sunset garden editor Johanna Silver brilliantly planted scarlet runner bean seeds at the base of the arbor. Within two months she had a stunning masterpiece and a new gateway to the edible gardens in the magazine's California headquarters. A true work of living, functional art in the garden.
Before: Designer and garden writer Rebecca Sweet of Gossip in the Garden posted this "before" photo of the Gracie when she recently visited Sunset's test gardens. With or without scarlet runner beans, the Gracie makes quite a statement!
Any climbing plant will grow in harmony with the Gracie Modern Arbor, but here are just a few more ideas for pairings:

Leslie artistically trained cherry tomatoes on the left and passion flower on the right of her kumquat Gracie Modern Arbor to create a very striking piece of visual (and edible!) modern art. Beautiful and functional composition. Brava, Leslie!

Garden goddess and actress Hillary Danner has artfully integrated several varieties of TerraTrellis into her bucolic urban organic garden where she grows stunning heirloom peppers and edibles for her line of jams and jellies Jenkins Jellies.
Several Ina Wall Trellis Jr. (in berry) support and frame ornamental vines along the simple wood fence. Akoris Garden Tuteurs (leaf and petal colors) are set in the raised edible beds supporting vines and adding architectural punch to the free-flowing organic shapes and textures.
Hillary cultivates many varieties of stunning heirloom peppers as well as tomatoes, japanese eggplant, squash, corn, pumpkins and herbs - many of which Hillary and business partner Maria Newman use for their unforgettably delicious Hellfire Pepper Jelly.
