Plant Bougainvillea Brasiliensis and they will have your landscape awash in a sea of purple flowers! Native to Brazil, Peru, and Bolivia, Bougainvillea 'Brasiliensis' is hardy and vigorous and this modern day hybrid is among the most beautiful of all the flowering vines. We like to grow them as a shrub or climbing vine, and when grown in a pot, they are an excellent choice for patios, decks, or poolside! Grow them on a trellis and use them as a vibrant hedge perfect for borders.
Bougainvillea Brasiliensis is a fast-growing evergreen that likes to grow in a spot that gets plenty of full sun exposure. In fact, while they can grow in partial shade too, the full sun produces the best flowering results and the best growth development. They respond well to drought and heat too. Once established, they require little to moderate water use, and we recommend fertilizing this Bougainvillea plant in the spring for the best bloom.
The Great Bougainvillea plant is easy to grow, so they are ideal for beginner gardeners or anyone that prefers a low-maintenance yard with plenty of spectacular colors!
