Bougainvillea are full-sun plants native to Mexico. While producing loads of blooms in bright colors, they are evergreen, but they require a warm climate to grow outdoors successfully. Bougainvillea are very drought- resistant and thrive in heat. Your customers may appreciate the fact that they can be grown in containers if your outdoor environment isn’t suitable year-round.
For best results with Bougainvillea, we recommend using a constant feed program of 200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.5 - 6.0. Allow them to dry out between watering.
For Barbara Karst Red we recommend one pinch 5-10 days after transplant, once the roots are established. Additional pinches every month may be required to shape your final pot. Remember to give your Bougainvillea 4 weeks from their final pinch to reach bloom stage.
Bougainvillea should be spaced adequately to allow airflow and light penetration between the foliage. Usually 2’ centers on baskets will be enough, but more space is needed for larger baskets.
We do not recommend plant growth regulators for Bougainvillea. Control height with proper pinching to encourage basal branching.
Aphids can be attracted to Bougainvillea.
