Bougainvilleas can be cultivated as hedges, trellis-climbers or ground covers. They can also be grown as cascading potted plants or grown in hanging baskets. As climbers, they can be used to add color to decks and patios.
Bougainvillea plants are very hardy and can survive some degree of neglect, but care is required for them to truly flourish. Sunlight is essential to the healthy growth and flowering of bougainvilleas, ideally six to eight hours of sunlight per day. Less than five hours will prevent bougainvilleas from blooming. Under the right conditions, bougainvilleas bloom for many month. In my subtropical area starting now, through winter into summer.
To keep them tidy and out of trouble, from growing to big out of bounds, they have to be pruned after flowering.
Believe it or not:
A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help.
