  • Plant Type. Outdoor Plant 
  • Product Height. 12 to 24 Inches
  • Season. Evergreen
  • Sunlightfull sun site is the best and bougainvillea flower most when the temperatures are moderate with long cooler nights in spring.
  • Watering. Water a newly planted bougainvillea frequently to keep the soil moist. Once the plant is established, it blooms best if the soil is a little on the dry side.
  • Growing in containers.  Use a regular potting soil without a high level of peat moss; too much peat retains moisture and may result in root rot. Any container used for growing bougainvillea must have at least one drainage hole. Install a trellis or support at planting time; installing one later may damage the roots.
  • Re-potting. Bougainvillea performs well in a relatively small container where its roots are slightly restricted. When the plant is large enough for repotting, move it to a container only one size larger.
  • Fertilising. Bougainvillea is a heavy feeder and requires regular fertilization to produce blooms throughout the growing season. You can use a water-soluble fertilizer mixed at half strength every seven to 14 days, or apply a slow-release fertilizer in spring and midsummer.
