Bougainvillea Pink is a tropical vine with beautiful and vibrant bracts (modified leaves) which surround tiny flowers. Looking for a vibrant low-maintenance ground cover? Need a bright and fast climber for a trellis or structure? Want to spice up a boring hanging basket or container? Bougainvillea is the answer!
Bougainvilleas are beautiful vine-like shrubs that come in a variety of vibrant colours and make for a stunning statement in any home or garden. They prefer mild winter areas and can grow against a fence, building, on a trellis, in containers or as a hedge. These tropical vine-like shrubs are quite drought tolerant, love the sun, and pack a huge punch of colour. With over 250 varieties of bougainvilleas out there, you’ll be sure to find the perfect one for your home! Bougainvillea plants are vigorous growers that can become overgrown if not kept in check; but they offer a dazzling colour show nearly year-round in warmer climates.
What many people think of as the blooms of bougainvillea aren’t actually blooms at all. The showy paper-like structures are a modified leaf called a bract. So the coloruful parts you see when you look at a bougainvillea are actually the leaves, not petals! These bracts hide the actual flowers inside, which are small and trumpet-shaped in whites and yellows. The showy bracts are typically found on new growth, with the showiest display following their winter dormancy.
