Design Ideas: Orange coloring makes this Bougainvillea unique. It is both reliable and vigorous, growing tall enough to shroud arbors in shade-giving foliage and flowers. Train it onto walls and fences, or onto unsightly sheds. Spiral the stems up posts and columns, and through wrought iron panels or fences. Super contrast against red tile roofs. A great choice for dry gardens in very hot landscapes

Provide average to lean, fast draining soil. USE CAUTION not to damage roots when planting. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Reduce frequency, once established; water container plants regularly, when top 3 in. of soil are dry. Provide trellis or arbor support. Fertilize in spring.

History

The intense color of these plants, often mistaken for the flowers is actually the bracts which draw pollinators to smaller more insignificant white tubular flowers nestled within.
