Bougainvillea

My fascination for bougainvillea is as old as my marriage, which is 3 years old. I was able to make my wife fall for it too and we have been collecting as many varieties/colors as we can. This specimen in the photo is one of the prettiest, that it has multiple colours in one plant. It is possible to achieve that also by grafting different colored plants into one.

What we have come to understand about growing Bougainvillea is that it is easy to propagate (cuttings around June), low maintenance, loves sun (needs it to bloom), cannot tolerate freezing temperature, and doesn’t like wet feet.

It can be grown in the ground or in pots, and is suitable for Bonsai. It can be grown for fencings, hung from pots in balconies, or as arch for gates.

Saplings are available at the plant nursery for sale (click here).
