Bougainvillea 'Elizabeth Angus' produces stunning, vibrant purple bracts, not magenta-pink as I originally stated. The purple color is deep and intense, making it a striking addition to any garden or landscape.

The plant's long, arching branches are covered in clusters of purple bracts that create a blanket of color throughout the warm months. The bracts, which are modified leaves that surround the small white flowers, are papery and thin, giving them a delicate appearance. The contrast between the lush green foliage and the vivid purple bracts is a sight to behold.

Like other Bougainvillea varieties, 'Elizabeth Angus' is a hardy and robust plant that thrives in warm, dry climates. It prefers full sun and well-drained soil, and can tolerate a range of soil types. With proper care, it can grow to be a large and impressive plant, providing a show-stopping display of vibrant purple bracts that will dazzle onlookers.

TIPS FOR BLOOMING

Bougainvillea is a stunning flowering plant known for its vibrant, colorful blooms. To encourage your bougainvillea to bloom, follow these tips:

  1. Sunlight: Bougainvillea thrives in full sun, so ensure your plant receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight each day.

  2. Pruning: Regular pruning promotes branching and flowering. After each blooming cycle, trim back the plant by about a third to stimulate new growth and blooms.

  3. Watering: Allow the top few inches of soil to dry out between waterings. Bougainvillea prefers a slightly dry environment, and overwatering can inhibit flowering.

  4. Fertilization: Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer with a higher phosphorus content (the middle number in the N-P-K ratio) to encourage blooms. Apply it according to the package instructions. Alternatively, you can use a water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.

  5. Stress: Bougainvillea tends to bloom more profusely when slightly stressed. Root-bound conditions or moderately dry soil can trigger blooming, but avoid extreme stress that may harm the plant.

  6. Temperature: Bougainvillea blooms best in warm temperatures between 65-95°F (18-35°C). Cooler temperatures, especially at night, can slow down or stop flowering.

  7. Avoid excess nitrogen: Using a high-nitrogen fertilizer can promote lush foliage growth at the expense of blooms. Choose a fertilizer with a lower nitrogen content to encourage flowering.

By providing the right conditions and care, your bougainvillea will reward you with an abundance of colorful blooms throughout the growing season.
