  Bougainvilla flowers
Bougainvilla flowers


Bougainvillae is a climbing vine that can not withstand the cold winter temps in the desert Southwest. Only hardy to about 30 or 40 degrees, depending on the variety.

Still a worthwhile plant for the patio garden or anywhere it can be grown in a container and taken indoors in the winter.

They do well as hanging baskets or climbing up a trellis. Partial shade, with morning sun, is best in the Southwest.

Bougainvilla's flowers vary in color and they bloom all summer long on a patio. The Bougainvilla plant is considered an evergreen and requires regular watering and slightly acidic soil. Try foliar feeding with Miracid.
