Bougainvillea Plants are sun-loving, low maintenance flowering plants that can grow in a myriad of dry, drought-stricken environmental conditions. Blooming papery, colourful flowers, they often branch out and cover trailing routes to fill the location in a canopy of popping bright shades. Perfect for outdoor garden, east-facing balconies and sunlit spaces, Bougainvilleas prefer to stay in heated dry conditions with minimal care and watering. If you are looking forward to adding a dash of colour and give a good foliage cover to your garden or balcony, this plant just might be your choice.
