Bougainvillea - 'California Gold' - pre-bonsai

Description

This auction is for one (1) Bougainvillea - 'California Gold' starter plant.

Bougainvillea can be used as a houseplant or hanging basket in cooler climates. In the landscape, it makes an excellent hot season plant, and its drought tolerance makes it ideal for warm climates year-round. Its high salt tolerance makes it a natural choice for color in coastal regions. It can be pruned into a standard, but is also grown along fence lines, on walls, in containers and hanging baskets, and as a hedge or an accent plant. Its long arching thorny branches bear heart-shaped leaves and masses of papery bracts of flowers.
 
These 5"+ plants come in 2.5" x 2.5" x 3.5" deep pots.

Cultivation

Bougainvilleas grow best in dry soil in very bright full sun and with frequent fertilization; but they require little water once established, and in fact will not flourish if over-watered. Hardiness zones 9b-11.
