Boungainvilleas


Bougainvillea is native to South America's Amazon rain forest. Bougainvillea was named in honor of Louis Antoine de Bougainville, a French military man who discovered the plant in 1768 in Brazil. 

It took several more decades before the tropical vine was actually grown in Europe; the first plant was brought to France in 1800. 




Although their colorful displays are described as flowers, they are actually bracts, paper-thin leaves that protect developing flowers. 

Bougainvillea flowers are usually white. There are two colors in this variety white and purple. From these species have come numerous hybrids of varying sizes, from 2-foot-tall dwarf.

 Orange bracts, fading to purplish pink.
