Bougainvillea x Hybrida
Bougainvillea x Hybrida or Bougainvillea. If you live in a temperate climate and want an (almost) year-round floral fiesta, then bougainvillea is the plant for you. Depending on the variety, it can be grown on a trellis or over an arbour, against a building or fence, in containers, as a hedge or ground cover, in tree form, and as a bonsai.
Bougainvillea needs at least 6 hours of full sun a day to flower profusely and look its best. This plant also loves the heat. Not enough sun = not enough colour. Remember, this is one plant that loves sun and heat!
