The flowers, which are abundant in the summer, form in threes and are very vivid and bright. The branches are woody, sometimes of a climbing nature, and form large spines or thorns, so be careful when transporting, handling or repotting them.
LIGHT: This plant requires plenty of sun. It will do better outdoors in warm climates, but it can survive cold winters on a sunny window sill.
WATER: During the summer the Bougainvillea needs plenty of water during the spring and summer and significantly less water during the winter. It will tolerate drought-like conditions and prefers to be kept cooler during the winter. Bougainvillea need plenty of nourishment during the growing season.
This is a real eye-catcher and definitely has summer written all over it.
These seasonal plants are available in 10" or larger pot sizes.
