My fascination for bougainvillea is as old as my marriage, which is nearly 2 years old. I was able to make my wife fall for it too and we have been collecting as many varieties/colors as we can. This specimen is one of the prettiest, that it has multiple colours in one plant.

What we have come to understand about growing Bougainvillea is that it is easy to propagate (cuttings around June), low maintenance, loves sun, cannot tolerate freezing temperature, and doesn't like wet feet.

It can be grown in the ground or in pots, and is suitable for Bonsai. It can be grown for fencings, hung from pots in balconies, or as arch for gates.
