Bougainvillea

When Rhonda was here she bought me this really pretty flower called Bougainvillea (pictured above with flower at the friday market). I liked it so much that I went out and bought a second one to go in my backyard. Then when we were in Milina at the hotel we stayed at they had two huge ones in pots in front of the hotel (pictured below). I had no idea that they could get so huge, should be interesting to see how mine grow.

I bought three for my backyard and they were beautiful at first, but with this heat, all the flowers are gone and they are real thorny...but they should spring back to life when it cools off.... in Sept/Oct... I hope...

I have two on my front porch and mine also have no blooms right now because of the heat. You'll know when to water them because they leaves will droop. They will definitely bloom again and again and grow a lot! Mine are each about 5 feet tall right now. They are very beautiful when blooming!
