About Bougainvillea

It is a semi-climber and can be grown as a hedge, a shrub, a climber over a sunny wall and also in pots. Bougainvilleas have beautiful, brightly colored bracts, which are specialized leaves that contain the plant’s flowers.

Maximum Reachable Height They are thorny, woody vines growing anywhere from 1 to 12 m (3 to 40 ft.) tall
Flower Colour Pink
Bloom Time They are evergreen where rainfall occurs all year, or deciduous if there is a dry season.
Difficulty Level Easy to grow

Planting And Care

  • Wait for the first colorful bracts to form and fall in spring.
  • Once they fall, prune excess growth.
  • Fertilize before flowering season.
  • This will cause new bloom on the shorter flowering spurs.
  • Repeat during the flowering season as needed.
  • Bougainvillea plants need support to cover a wall, fence, or other areas.
  • Create rows of wire or string against the surface that you want covering.

    Bougainvillea Care

    These tropical climbers are suitable for large containers placed in the garden during summer but must be kept frost-free in winter. If you want good blooming, give them at least 5 hours a day of full sunlight as a minimum. More hours of direct sun is better. Less than 5 hours and the plant may not bloom very well. Your plants will thrive in shade or partial shade, but only have nice growth with little or no blooms.

    Sunlight Full sun
    Watering Moderate. In cooler periods or when you bring your plants indoors for the winter, the water requirement will be much less.
    Soil Dry, sandy, well-drained soil
    Temperature Up to 29 degrees C
    Fertilizer Mature plants can be heavy feeders. High phosphorus with micronutrients, as well as additional iron and magnesium. Plants grow best with small amounts of nutrients constantly available.
