San Diego Red Live Bougainvillea Starter/Plug Plant with Good Roots
In milder climes, bougainvillea can be grown indoors or in a hanging basket. It grows well in hot climes year-round and is a great hot season plant for the landscape due to its drought tolerance. It is a natural choice for color in coastal areas due to its great salt resistance.
Although it can be trained into a conventional shape, it is also cultivated as a hedge or accent plant along fences, on walls, in pots, and in hanging baskets. It has masses of papery flower bracts and heart-shaped leaves on its long, arched, thorny branches.
The pots for these 5-6"+ plants are 2.5" x 2.5" x 3.5".
When established, bougainvilleas take minimal water and, in fact, won't thrive if overwatered. They grow best in dry soil, full light, and periodic fertilizing. Zones 9b to 11 of hardiness.
