Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea spp.)


Bougainvillea come in three different varieties; bush form, vine form and Torch Glow, which is a more compact variety. Bougainvillea love the heat and are an extremely drought tolerant plant once established. They are heavy bloomers throughout Spring and Fall.

While extremely hardy in the desert heat, these plants can be damaged by hard frost and should be protected.
