San Diego Bougainvilleas
After our last few weeks of hot weather, many San Diego garden plants are wilted and not looking their best. The absolute exception to that is our Bougainvilleas. They thrive in the heat and are looking great! We have so many gorgeous bougainvilleas here that I thought I would show of few that are easy to get and do well. Shown above from left to right:
Bougainvillea California Gold, Bougainvillea Sundown, Bougainvillea San Diego Red
Bougainvillea Royal Purple, Bougainvillea Orange King, Bougainvillea Miami Pink
Bougainvillea La Jolla, Bougainvillea James Walker, Bougainvillea Afterglow
Bougainvillea Jamaica White, Bougainvillea Barbara Karst
Bougainvilleas have root systems that get damaged very easily when planted. To avoid this, follow the advice from Sunshine Gardens Nursery here. For best flowering, stress the bougainvillea a little by keeping the soil just on the dry side.
