Bougainvilleas are an immensely popular outdoor creeper that produces an abundance of brightly coloured flowers throughout most of the year. You can tame with beautiful beast by pruning or you can let it grow large and beautiful. This is an easy plant to grow. Even though it does not like frost, it will recover. It is very drought tolerant and pest resistant. If you follow the watering and feeding instructions below, this should be trouble-free plant for you.

Light requirement: Full Sun and Part sun/part shade

Water requirement: Low

Watering frequency: Bougainvilleas thrive with deep watering every three or four weeks rather than frequent shallow waterings. They like getting dry between watering. Overwatering will reduce blooms.

Soil: Not fussy about soil type as long as it is well-draining.

Skill level: Beginner

Growth rate: Intermediate

Suitable for containers: Yes

More info: Two points to consider when fertilizing bougainvilleas:
1. Too much nitrogen will result in extensive leaf growth but reduced flowering.
2. Potash or potassium is essential for heaving blooming - you can use a hibiscus fertiliser.
