This heat loving flowering shrub boasts beautiful bracts (colored leaves) atop upright vining branches. These flowering machines will bloom year-round in warm climates. In a climate where the winters are cool, they’ll bloom for 9-10 months. The tiny white centers are actually the flowers and the bracts are what give us those big shows of color. Bougainvilleas put out a big explosion of color, drop their bracts and then flower again. Makes for a wonderful accent plant as its rapid growth makes this an excellent selection as a cover for arbors trellises and fences. Prefers dry well drained soil for best flower production. Blooms much better when grown in pots.
