|Design Ideas||Grow this gorgeous bougainvillea onto arbors, pergolas, gazebos and trellises, up walls and into trees where it can gracefully spill its color. Grow beside steps and on banks. Twine up posts and columns.|
|Companion Plants||Lantana (Lantana); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Princess Flower (Tibouchina); Plumbago (Plumbago); Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum)|
|Care||Provide average to lean, fast draining soil. USE CAUTION not to damage roots when planting. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Reduce frequency, once established; water container plants more often. Apply a controlled-release fertilizer in spring.|
|Lore||The intense color of these plants, often mistaken for the flowers is actually the bracts which draw pollinators to smaller more insignificant white tubular flowers nestled within.|
