Product Description

A real taste of hot lazy Summers, Bougainvillea grow freely in hot countries around the Mediterranean with their rich colours smothering walls and balconies in the hot sun, but they also make great summer plants right here too!

The lovely magenta pink variety 'Alexandra' is one of the more compact and floriferous varieties, and performs well at lower temperatures in winter too. The colour comes, infact, from bracts, not flowers themselves, a little like Christmas poinsettias. The bracts turn brightest magenta pink in summer whereas the flower itself is quite insignificant - a small creamy flower, which looks like the eye of the bracts.

These plants have been expertly trained into a standard form, and can easily be maintained this way outside. Although climbers, they are slower growing in the UK. Grow in large pots in full sun, and then in winter provide protection below 2C. They can lose their bracts suddenly due to stress, so do not be alarmed if they drop - new ones will quickly re-appear in warm weather.

A real tropical addition to the Summer garden!

I have used You Garden a lot and mostly been satisfied with the service but this time I should have been told that I would have to wait 6 weeks to have both products delivered together.
Product:
I was very disappointed with the bougainvillea which arrived with two purple bracts in flower. TWO. There was quite a bit of old wood and plenty cuts visible. It is evident that this plant was in much better shape during the 6 weeks that I waited for it . I knew the oleander would take that long to deliver but why the bougainvillea ? I got very poor value for £30 paid for this.

I had ordered and received this item before, which prompted me to reorder. This
2nd plant was much smaller with the leaves a lot paler and compared to the first
not so vibrant.

The plant arrived when they said it would but please see below re the condition etc. They did take quite a long time to respond to my complaint but have offered to replace it if it doesn't recover.
Product:
Bougainvillea arrived very stressed and had already dropped very many leaves. I took photos and sent them to You Garden, who took a while to reply, but advised me to give it a good drink., which I did. They have offered to replace it if it doesn't recover - it is now looking slightly better but has dropped all its lilac bracts so just has green leaves. At this time of year it should have all its lovely lilac bracts, but this one has lost them I'm watching it closely, but am not too happy with it.
