Bougainvilleas provide stunning color in any garden. The flower is the small, white tubular shape inside the vivid modified leaves (bracts).
Bougainvillea is by nature a vigorous and chaotic plant that produces long, trailing stems covered in sharp spines. It can be grown as a climber or pruned into a free-standing shrub up to 10 feet tall.
