Bougainvillea glabra 'Sanderiana'
Bougainvillea are partly deciduous climbers, they are grown for their colourful bracts that surround the insignificant white flowers. Creates a lovely tropical effect.
Glabra sanderiana has purple, pink to magenta flowers. It makes an ideal conservatory plant or may be placed outside for the summer. Prefers to be kept between 10 and 15 degrees centigrade for the winter.
Bougainvillea with its very colourful and graceful arching branches adds a wonderful Mediterranean touch to the garden. A showy plant that really catches the eye, bougainvillea is surprisingly easy to care for. It needs full sun and can be grown on a sunny windowsill or conservatory - during the summer they can be placed outside in a sunny sheltered spot.
