What is the best part of your bougainvillea plant?
How do you keep all that color?
What people don’t often know is that the abundance of color that the “bougies” provide are actually BRACTS not flowers.
The colorful bracts actually surround the small discreet white flowers. With that being said, it requires quite a bit more nitrogen in its food than other flowering shrubs. So by hitting your “BOUGIES” about every four weeks with fertilizer, a lot of direct sun, and careful watering (they don’t like wet feet or overhead water… they will start to defoliate) you can have the best blooms in the neighborhood.
