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.


Growing Tips

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.

Pinching

For Royal Purple 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.

Spacing

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.

Height Control

We do not recommend plant growth regulators for Bougainvillea. Control height with proper pinching to encourage basal branching.

Pests

Aphids can be attracted to Bougainvillea.

Disease

  1. Royal Purple are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Royal Purple Liners

  1. We recommend planting 3-4 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4” pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. 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.

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
