Bougainvilleas are flowering machines.
These tropical climbers are suitable for large containers placed in the garden during summer but must be kept frost-free in winter. If you want good blooming, give them at least 5 hours a day of full sunlight as a minimum. More hours of direct sun is better. Less than 5 hours and the plant may not bloom very well. Your plants will thrive in shade or partial shade, but only have nice growth with little or no blooms.
Sunlight: Full sun
Soil: Dry, sandy, well-drained soil
Water: Moderate. In cooler periods or when you bring your plants indoors for the winter, the water requirement will be much less.
Temperature: Up to 29 degrees C
Fertilizer: Mature plants can be heavy feeders. High phosphorus with micronutrients, as well as additional iron and magnesium. Plants grow best with small amounts of nutrients constantly available.
