Collection: Bougain villea ball

ougainvillea is a tropical plant known for its vibrant and colorful bracts, which are often mistaken for flowers. Here's a description of the plant:

  1. Appearance: Bougainvillea is a woody, climbing vine or shrub that can grow quite large if left untrimmed. Its leaves are small, green, and ovate, but the most striking feature is its papery, brightly colored bracts. These bracts come in a variety of shades including pink, purple, red, orange, yellow, white, or bi-color combinations. The actual flowers are small and inconspicuous, usually white or pale yellow, and nestled within the colorful bracts.

  2. Growth Habit: Bougainvillea is a vigorous grower and can be trained to climb up trellises, fences, or walls, making it a popular choice for adding color and texture to gardens, landscapes, and arbors. It can also be grown in containers and trained as a standard or bonsai.

  3. Climate: Bougainvillea thrives in warm, tropical and subtropical climates, though some varieties are more cold-hardy than others. It prefers full sun and well-draining soil, and is relatively drought-tolerant once established.

  4. Blooming Season: Bougainvillea typically blooms from late spring to fall, though in ideal conditions, it may produce sporadic blooms year-round.

  5. Maintenance: Bougainvillea is relatively low-maintenance once established, requiring little water once its roots are established. However, it benefits from regular pruning to control its size and shape, as well as to promote flowering. It's important to note that bougainvillea has thorns, so care should be taken when handling or pruning the plant.
