Bougainvillea ‘Afterglow’ adds vibrant color to any landscape thanks to the abundant, papery, petal-like orange/peach flowers that blanket this evergreen periodically throughout the year. This hybrid bougainvillea plant is valued for its long blooming season as well as how fast it can grow. We like mass planting them, where the sight of the burst of flowers will want you to bask in the afterglow. They are also known by their botanical name, Bougainvillea x buttiana 'Afterglow,' and are an excellent choice for use in rock gardens, wall-side borders or used as ground covers for banks! These bougainvilleas are an excellent choice for all kinds of landscapes, whether you live in the city, suburbs or out in the countryside!
This Bougainvillea ‘Afterglow’ can thrive in both full sun or light shade, so they are ideal for our area. They also make a colorful accent for pergolas, and many people like to use them in hanging baskets too. Once established, this bougainvillea plant requires little to moderate water, and they will also have a good drought tolerance. We recommend fertilizing a couple of times a month during the growing season for the best development.
