Product Description

A real taste of hot lazy Summers, Bougainvillea grow freely in hot countries around the Mediterranean with their rich colours smothering walls and balconies in the hot sun, but they also make great summer plants right here too!

The lovely magenta pink variety 'Alexandra' is one of the more compact and floriferous varieties, and performs well at lower temperatures in winter too. The colour comes, infact, from bracts, not flowers themselves, a little like Christmas poinsettias. The bracts turn brightest magenta pink in summer whereas the flower itself is quite insignificant - a small creamy flower, which looks like the eye of the bracts.

These plants have been expertly trained into a standard form, and can easily be maintained this way outside. Although climbers, they are slower growing in the UK. Grow in large pots in full sun, and then in winter provide protection below 2C. They can lose their bracts suddenly due to stress, so do not be alarmed if they drop - new ones will quickly re-appear in warm weather.

A real tropical addition to the Summer garden!

I have used this company for a number of years and have generally found their standards high, until the most recent experience.
Product:
This arrived badly packed - squashed in one box with too many other plants. It was badly damaged and nothing like the size advertised on the website. After complaint it was replaced for a much more healthy specimen, but this was, if anything, even smaller than the original! Very disappointed after years of great service.

I'm sorry to hear about the damage to your order. We've still got some great looking plants on the nursery and we'd be happy to send you another if you'd like?

The plant has shed more than 80% of its leaves. I did speak to Customer Services.
GardenBargains Comments
Thank you for your order.

These plants are not hardy, so if you have it outside this is to be expected - in fact, they do shed bracts/leaves at this time of year anyway. Bring it indoors and protect from extreme heat/cold and it should recover in spring.
