The Beautiful Overlooked Tropical Bougainvillea Plant

Bougainvillea Plant

The beautiful Tropical Bougainvillea Plant isn’t from a tropical island like Hawaii, or Tahiti, like many seem to think.

It’s actually originally from the tropical Amazon Rainforest near Brazil.

These tropical bougainvillea vines really get overlooked quite often, and what a shame when in bloom, they add the perfect tropical look to your garden and bougainvillea care is a breeze.

Bougainvillea flowers come in so many bright and vibrant colors that when in bloom they will brighten any garden or patio more that you could ever imagine.

They come in many colors like Orange flowers, Pink, Red, Purple flowers, White and sometime a combination of two colors flowers.

Bougainvillea Care

I must say that the Bougainvillea flowers are such easy tropical rainforest plants to grow. In their natural environment in the Brazilian rainforest it varies as far as moisture, it can also have heavy rain fall during the rainy season, then very dried out periods with no rain at all.

The rainforest does have its dry season which most people don't realize, the influx in the weather makes this tropical blooming vine much more tolerable to changing soil conditions.

One constant is the humidity and heat that it loves so much and that if is no colder than 60 degrees and at the hottest point of the day reaches 90 that makes it very happy.

Although here at the beach where I live, we don’t have much humidity and it, on rare occasions can get down into the 40's, but my plants come back stronger than ever and fuller each year, and I never add extra fertilizer.

Bougainvillea care Is so simple , if you want to give it a fertilizer that will be fine it will take whatever you give it. I like to make it simple and love time released pellets. You can feed them every three months with this method.

When watering they love to be completely soaked, then let it dry out before you water again

They really are fantastic blooming vines that are so simple to care for and can handle lots of neglect.

These Two Pictures I Took From My Backyard

I have these bright fuchsia bougainvillea plants above in my back yard and I love them!

The colors the bougainvillea flowers bring to my tropical garden is breathtaking. I took some pictures of my flowers to show you plus more pictures of flowers, bougainvillea, to show you the colors and how beautiful they actually are.

When it comes to bougainvillea care, they love to climb, and cling to everything it its path. They can some times be very invasive but when it blooms and your garden in full with color it’s all worth its climbing abilities.

No matter how much you trim or prune them you can’t hurt them, and they come back healthier and fuller than ever! So don’t feel bad if you need to cut them back a bit.
