More Information
Botanical Pronunciationboo-gan-VIL-lee-uh
LoreThe 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.
Average Size at MaturityVigorous stems quickly climb 20 to 30 ft. tall, with support.
Bloom TimeSummer; nearly year-round in frost-free regions.
Design IdeasOrange coloring makes this Bougainvillea unique. It is both reliable and vigorous, growing tall enough to shroud arbors in shade-giving foliage and flowers. Train it onto walls and fences, or onto unsightly sheds. Spiral the stems up posts and columns, and through wrought iron panels or fences. Super contrast against red tile roofs. A great choice for dry gardens in very hot landscapes
