Fast-growing woody tropical evergreen vine to 15-20′ tall x 10-15′ wide though easily maintained to a smaller size with pruning. This popular eye-catching variety is best-suited to milder climates and features masses of beautiful majestic looking pink-blushed white flowers that bloom repeatedly throughout the warmer months attracting hummingbirds. Bougainvillea in general does not like root disturbance the root ball should be left completely undisturbed when planting. Thrives in summer heat in a well-drained soil and once established has low water needs. Overwatered plants will tend to have more abundant foliage with less abundant bloom. Allow soil to dry between watering. Great for training on fences trellises and arbors or as an impressive large container specimen. This heat tolerant species prefers a full to partial sun exposure.
