Bougainvillea, Bougainvillea cvs.

Bougainvillea is one of our most popular tropical plants here in South Florida due to their explosive color variations. It loves the warm and sunny climate and is very easy to grow. All varieties are very drought tolerant and actually prefer a well drained, dry situation. They can grow in almost any soil type and are fast growers. Use them to decorate fences, trellises, arbors or espalied on large walls. This versatile plant comes in many eye-popping colors.
