Raspberry Ice Bougainvillea
Bougainvillea 'Raspberry Ice'
|Description||A beautiful, low, mounded, spreading form with a profusion of raspberry-pink blossom-like bracts and contrasting variegated foliage. Perfect for hanging baskets, or as a colorful shrub or groundcover in small sunny spaces. One of the hardiest varieties! Evergreen in frost-free climates; provides superb warm season color in colder winter areas.|
|Watering||Water deeply when soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 2 to 3 ft. tall, 5 to 6 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||After each blooming cycle, trim or pinch the soft tips of young plants stems to encourage new growth. This will create multiple offshoots, thicken the plant's appearance, and yield prolific blooms.|
|Companion Plants||Lantana (Lantana); Cordyline (Cordyline); Evergreen Clematis (Clematis); Salvia (Salvia); Upright Juniper (Juniperus)|
|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 regularly, when top 3 in. of soil are dry. Apply a controlled-release fertilizer in spring.|
