I deliberately planted this Holmskioldia sanguinea (common name: Chinese Hat Plant, Cup and Saucer Plant, Parasol Flower) from the Verbenaceae Family along this drain with the intention that someday they would grow big and bushy enough to allow their overlapping branches to provide a beautiful bed of orange flowers.

In the past, the contractor used to prune off the arching branches but finally they got the message and left the branches alone.

I would definitely post more photos when they grow even more established. A link is provided below for reference:
