Bougainvillea

This sub-tropical vine is a riot of color when in bloom. It can grow 10 to 20 feet in a single growing season, but less here in this area where it is an annual. Ranging in color from pinks and purples to red, these drought tolerant vines can be trained into bush or tree forms.

Be careful though, with their beauty comes long sharp thorns! They prefer to dry out in between waterings and want full sun. Fertilize bi-weekly.
