Pink Bougainvillea Ball in a 5L Pot
Get a real taste of summer with these Pink Bougainvilleas from YouTube. 5L potted plant
A real taste of hot lazy Summers, Bougainvillea grow freely in hot countries 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 particular variety has been fashioned into a beautiful ball of flora, creating a wonderful mound of tropical colour and as Bougainvillea is slow growing in the UK it is perfect for growing in large pots on the patio, with just a little prune to shape required.
The lovely magenta pink variety is one of the more compact and floriferous varieties, and performs well at lower temperatures in winter too. The colour comes, in fact, from bracts, not flowers themselves - a little like Christmas poinsettia. The bracts turn brightest magenta pink in summer whereas the flower itself is quite insignificant - a small creamy flower, which looks like the eye of the bracts.
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.
