DescriptionBougainvillea glabra or ‘paper flower’ gives most of its spectacular colour from its modified leaves (bracts) surrounding each small flower.Bougainvillea doesn’t need a lot of water or fertilizer to grow well. Once established only water when the soil is dry to 3 inches deepbougainvillea is very drought tolerant. Fertilize lightly starting in spring and every few months through the growing season. Too much fertilizer or rich soil will stimulate the shrub to grow lots of shoots and few flowers.If planting bougainvillea near a trellis or pergola, train the branches up the posts and attach them to the posts with velcro plant ties. Bougainvillea will not attach itself to vertical supports like a grape vine, so they will need help climbing.Dwarf bougainvillea varieties are especially adapted to container growing. Plant in a container one size larger than the root ball. Dwarf bougainvillea varieties are especially adapted to container growing. Plant in a container one size larger than the root ball. Bougainvillea grows rampantly and can quickly become unruly. Prune after it finishes blooming for the season to keep the plant in bounds and stimulate more flowering. Bougainvillea bloom on new wood, so prune to stimulate the growth of new branches.
