Description for Bougainvillea glabra mauve queen

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 Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Bougainvillea glabra Purple, red, pink and yellow Seasonal bloomer 15.00 to 40.00 feet easy to grow

Planting and 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 Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun to Partial Shade well-drained soil Medium 32 degrees F Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Bougainvillea glabra mauve queen

    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.
