Bougainvillea are a genus of thorny ornamental vines, bushes and trees that flower profusely. The vine species grow anywhere from 1 to 12m tall scrambling over other plants with their spiky thorns. They are evergreen in areas of year-round rainfall or deciduous during dry seasons. The actual flower of the plant is small and white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colours associated with the plant. These colours include pink, magenta, red, orange, white and yellow. Bougainvillea Glabra is sometimes referred to as “paper flowers” because of the thin paper like bracts.

The growth rate of Bougainvillea’s varies from slow to rapid depending on the variety. They tend to flower all year round in equatorial regions. Elsewhere they are seasonal with bloom cycles typically from 4 to 6 weeks long. Bougainvillea grow best in dry soil, in very bright full sun with frequent fertilisation. Once well established they require little water and in fact will not flourish if over-watered.
