This lovely climbing shrub, which bears the name Dr. Bougainville in honour of the 18th-century French admiral, is covered with bracts that resemble blossoms in the spring and early summer, surrounding its inconsequential flowers.
Bougainvillea are best suited to the conservatory border due to their size, which can reach 3–4 m (9–13) in the wild. However, some varieties, including B. buttiana and B. glabra, can be grown in pots and can grow to a height of 1-1.2 m (3–4). Christiana B. Mrs. Butt has red roses in her bouquet. B. glabra has bright green leaves and double pink flowers. In a border, both plants can reach a height of 3 metres (10 feet).
Good lighting without direct sunlight is present.
Warm in the summer, but well ventilated on hot days, cool in the winter, and 6’_8′ (43 46’f) in the spring.
