You can't upload pictures directly to here from your computer, but you can post pics here that are already on-line at some photo hosting site, like photobucket.com

Another possibility is Tibouchina, which I've seen trained into boxes before. Like Ceniza, I find this to be a bit unfortunate as the plant naturally has a gorgeous rounded habit....
