Bougainvillea Alexandra 5L pot 1.4M on cane tripod
A real taste of hot lazy summers with these beautiful Bougainvilleas. 5L potted plant
A real taste of hot lazy summers, Bougainvillea grow freely in warmer climes around the Mediterranean with their rich colours smothering walls and balconies in the hot sun, but they also make great summer plants right here, too.
This gorgeous magenta-pink variety, 'Alexandra,' is one of the more compact and floriferous varieties, and performs well at lower temperatures in Winter too. The colour actually comes from bracts, not flowers themselves, a little like Christmas poinsettias. The bracts turn the brightest magenta pink in summer creating a ball of tropical summer colour. The flowers themselves are actually a small creamy flower, which looks like the eye of the bracts.
Although climbers, they are slower growing in the UK and therefore make the perfect plant for growing in large pots on the patio to spruce up entertaining areas, or add to borders for an exotic touch.
In winter provide protection below 2°C. They can lose their bracts suddenly due to stress, so do not be alarmed if they drop - new ones will quickly re-appear in warm weather.
A real tropical addition to the summer garden.
