Bougainvillea is a genus of thorny ornamental vines, bushes, and trees with flower-like spring leaves near its flowers. Different authors accept between four and 18 species in the genus.

Common name: lesser bougainvillea or paperflower
Color: Purple, red, pink and yellow
Bloom time: Seasonal bloomer
Height: 15.00 to 40.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
My first experiment with bougainvillea was several years ago with a small cutting which I had put directly into the soil in a rainy season. The new growth started very soon, within 3-4 weeks.
At that time I did not care about the quality of soil and also gave only nitrogen fertilizer so the plant grew in uncontrollable proportion with very less flowers. I was fed-up with the wild growth of the bougainvillea plant, I wanted it to be very small, though not as small as a bonsai.

Sunlight: :Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 32 degrees F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Water sparingly as bougainvillea plants produce too much leaf growth in place of flowers with excessive water.
  • Over-watering can cause rot and weakening of the plant.


Special Feature:
Plants can be grown in containers and used around pools, giving a distinctive southern feel to an area. They can also be espaliered or trained on a standard or grown in a large basket. They are large billowing plants that have a nice texture as well as colorful flower bracts. In a greenhouse or sunroom, they will require ample room to spread.
