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 is one of the more compact and floriferous types, and performs well at lower temperatures in winter too. The colour comes, in fact, from bracts, not flowers themselves - a little like a Christmas poinsettia. 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 clipped into a ball shape and are supplied in a 5L pot, approx. 40-55cm tall (including pot). Although climbers, they are slower growing in the UK. They’re perfect for growing in large pots in full sun on your patio, 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!
