Bougainvillea Alexandra Pink Standard - 1 x 90cm Plant

347151
Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVELY SIZE HEALTHY PLANT I have always liked Bourgainvilleas as they remind me of holidays in the Med. This is a really good sized plant on a standard stem so lovely in a pot on my patio. I know they need extra care, but hoping to keep it overwinter indoors. Well packed and good delivery. My one query was I did not realise it had thorns like a rose, this is not mentioned on tv so may not suit homes with young children. Also colour more bluey purple and the pink I imagined but still very pretty. Would recommend this plant. 24 August 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Very healthy plant arrived in good condition not as tall as stated and not many flowers Bought this plant after visiting Greece and falling in love with them .Ordered from Ideal World as they seemed to offer the best deal and I wanted an established plant , not a cutting .Overall happy with my purchase ,although not quite as big as advertised .Many of the blooms dropped within the first few days this, I think can be expected with plant having to be transported and the get acclimatised to new site . 20 August 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by lots of dead wood where it's been trimmed hope this comes back if not will look stupid forever some nice hanging branches lots of flowers just a shame it's been hacked and left lots of dead wood 28 August 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by one sided top trimmed to stem at one side and bone dry when it arrived this plant is utter rubbish sent Monday Arrived Saturday with 50%leaves and bracks sitting on the bottom of the box when opened. for some reason half of the top ball of the plant had been trimmed of so if it can be rescued it will only work hard against a wall very very dissapointed and will NOT order again 24 August 2016

A steady evergreen with vibrant magenta pink displays in summer.

You may recognise the Bougainvillea 'Alexandra Pink from your travels abroad, as this variety is widely grown in the Mediterranean.

It is however quite happy to live in the British climate and is winter hardy to temperatures as low as -5C. A little winter protection will see this beauty through colder patches, in preparation for summer blooms.

The interesting fact about this standard is that the colouration in the summer actually come from Bracts and not its flowers.

Grow in a large pot in full sun to achieve maximum potential. If stressed this tree can lose its Bracts so don’t be alarmed if this happens. The colour will return with warm weather.

  • Ideal For: Patio pots/small gardens/balconies/terraces/conservatories
  • Flowers: Colourful ‘bracts’ from June - October.
  • Fruit: N/A
  • Position: Full sun /partial shade.
  • Height/Spread: Approx. 1m (3ft) after 5 years.
  • Hardiness: Winter hardy to -5°C.
  • Specification: Supplied as Bougainvillea Standard Plant, 90cm Tall.
