Vibrant Bougainvilla Flowers

Widely popular and abundant in many tropical islands like Hawaii and Asian countries, Bougainvilla flowers do survive in some US states specially areas with sunny and mild climates.

Bougainvilla flower is a favorite among many because of its capability to produce abundant, vibrant and rich color flowers specially red or fuchsia that could easily transform a boring spot in a yard into a gorgeous display of flowers.


Bougainvilla flower plant is a great alternative to add color to certain areas in your yard specially near the fences and corners of your yard. You may buy them as young plant but normally bougainvillas can possibly grow around 4-5 feet tall and wide as well, so it is wise to consider planting them in places where there is space to grow wide and tall and not fight with your other plants.
Bougainvilla plant is not very ideal for all household because of its very thorny stems, more like rose plants. So if you have kids and toddlers that are frequent in areas that you are considering of planting bougainvilla flower plant, it might not be a great idea afterall because the thorns can pose as danger to them.
