Gardening: Bougainvillea are hardy plants and can be grown in almost all type of soil and wide range of climate. They produce less vegetative growth and more flowers and bracts in dry and warm climate, porous soil but not rich in nutrient and in full sun. Prolonged rainy season, high humidity, shady location and clay soil promote vegetative growth and adversely affect flowering. Bougainvillea are grown on arch, wall, porch and on any suitable support for a colorful display. They are popular in both private and public gardens, along roads, as standards on support or bush and are excellent plant for landscaping dry and rocky areas and undulated sites. Bougainvillea are very useful pot plants and can also be trained as ‘ bonsai ‘. Because of restricted root growth, they flower well in pots.
Bougainvillea in the garden offers green foliage year-round and brilliant blooms in winter to summer.
These tropical climbers are suitable for large containers placed in the garden during summer but must be kept frost-free in winter.
