Bougainvillea: FOTD

This spring, at the plant nursery, I asked for a climbing vine. The only one they had was a bougainvillea. I got it , planted it up against a West facing wall and hoped for the best. I have to say it has really surprised me it has done so well. It is a wonderful splash of color to look at on our back deck.

I submit this bright bougainvillea to Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge. Click here to see her FOTD.

      It will die back in the fall here. Our climate is too cold for it. But I am enjoying it now! Thanks for commenting Amy!

  4. So beautiful. Makes me long to be back in South Africa, where we had the most beautiful bougainvillaeas. Here in New Zealand, they don’t do so well because of the climate.

    I hope it’s the thornless one – I once had to trim an overgrown bougainvillea, and I still bear the scars.

        I agree! I think the leaves are beautiful, whether on the vine, or scattered along the ground. 😁
