Recently Shipped Bougainvillea 'New River', Purple Bougainvillea


This tropical plant, native to South America,is a very versatile vine. It can be grown indoors in hanging baskets, pots or as bonsais, as well as topiaries or along fences’ lines or walls. It is also a low-maintenance plant as it is drought-tolerant and usually pest-free.

It is strikingly beautiful and highly sought for ornamental purposes, given its bright-colored bracts that can be found in pink, purple, white, orange, yellow, etc. The flowers are clusters of usually 3 small white ones that are surrounded by the colored bracts.

This thorny plant prefers warm weather, but it can be grown in cooler climates without being affected by the dryness. Dry soil provides the best condition, along with frequent fertilization (monthly during spring and summer) and full sun. Excess watering can actually hinder the flourishing of the plant.

    That arrived looking beautiful!

  5. Barry Allen (verified owner)

    The Bougainvillea plant arrived safely. It looks healthy with a lot of small leave sprouts. However, it has no brackets yet and doesn’t look like anything in the above picture. I unwrapped it per your instructions, and just set it in a bigger container near the sun. I didn’t water it because it looked quite saturated already from the shipping.

  6. Serey Sao (verified owner)

    My plant arrived right before Mother’s Day as promised! Nice and full! This was my second purchase from them. I will continue to order from them. I’m very pleased!

One of the most beautiful flower you can have year long

I bought these for our all throughout our home (which is also our home based business) for our front & back yard because I want beautiful & healthy, bushy and full plants that bloom very pretty flowers everywhere and spread all over quickly.
