Care & Size Guidance
Bougainvillea need full sun to grow well and bloom profusely.
While we do not recommend putting this plant permanently outdoors in the British climate, it is known to be one of the hardiest varieties of Bougainvillea, reportedly coping with temperatures down to -8°C. Therefore, it is definitely worth experimenting with in the most sheltered of gardens and in unheated conservatories and greenhouses.
It can also be grown in a large pot and moved undercover during the coldest periods. Use a well-draining, somewhat-acidic soil and water them thoroughly when the top couple of centimetres of soil feel dry, but avoid overwatering. Fertilize every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertiliser. Prune lightly to shape and remove dead flowers for continuous blooming.
