Answer: Arizona is certainly different than Arkansas, in terms of what will grow well. You've made some good choices, though. Wisteria, cape jasmine or climbing roses will all grow up and cover the arbor. The soils in Arizona tend to be alkaline so most plants will benefit from a few applications of Ironite during the growing season. In my Phoenix area garden I give my vining plants about a half-cup of Ironite in March, again in July and one more application in September. I just sprinkle it near the base of the plant and it becomes diluted with water from the sprinkler or from rainfall. It helps keep the foliage green all growing season long. Whatever you decide to plant, be sure to water deeply once or twice a week (depending upon temperatures). Good luck with your new garden!
