A Bold, Multi-Purpose Bougainvillea The Pink Pixie Bougainvilleas fuchsia bracts are out of this world. These bright bracts - or leaves - encircle small white flowers, and the more established your Bougainvillea, the more leaves transform from green into pink, providing the brightest landscape addition. These colorful plants are also amazingly versatile. As climbing vines, they'll grow over arbors, doorways and other structures. Alternatively, if they have nothing to grow on, they'll spread across the ground, beautifully covering any empty space. Gardeners in arid and hot climates love Bougainvilleas. Originating in South America, this vine does well in extremely hot temperatures and even withstands periods of drought. It requires such limited moisture, you can even plant it in your rock garden! In fact, the Pink Pixie Bougainvillea is the opposite of fussy. Rather, it blooms more regularly in conditions that would harm other plants like crowded roots, limited water, and high temperatures. Plus, this variety attracts birds, bees and butterflies as an added bonus! If youre looking for a plant that flourishes in tough conditions and radiates bright beauty, the Pink Pixie Bougainvillea is for you. Order yours today! Planting & Care 1. Planting: Bougainvilleas do best in a full sun location. Try and find somewhere that will offer at least 6 hours of direct sun every day. Ensure your drainage is good - plants don't like to be in areas where water may collect for prolonged periods. Bougainvilleas like to climb since they're vines, so make sure they have something like a fence or trellis to grow properly. If growing as a hedge, space them 18-20 inches apart. 2. Watering: Water your Bougainvillea as needed. Maintain a consistently moist soil but NOT overly saturated. Too much water can weaken the vine and cause excess leaf growth in place of the decorative color youd expect. For a potted Bougainvillea, use your index finger to determine if more water is needed. Stick it into the soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around. If there is still moisture present, leave it be a bit longer. If it has dried out, water until you see it escaping the drainage holes and stop. 3. Pruning: Your Bougainvillea will respond to pruning greatly when done properly. Pruning is typically done in the late fall or early winter season. Some light trimming will keep the vine trained to a certain visual habit. Trimming removes smaller materials and gives the form a certain silhouette as well as maintain the shape. Hedge planted bougainvilleas will require some extensive pruning unless they have been properly trained along a trellis or other vertical support systems. You can remove dead wood/branches as they appear. Pruning the tips of the wood just after a bud node encourages the formation of new branches to form at the pruning junction. Potted vines should have their tips pinched off monthly during their active growing season to encourage more branching of the vine. Pruning should be done after winter with sterilized clippers. Rubbing alcohol works perfectly for sterilization. 4. Fertilizing: During the blooming season, your Bougainvillea will respond well to monthly applications of fertilizer. The best results have been from 6-8-10 formulas which still allow enough Nitrogen for healthy growth but also a boost of Phosphorous to encourage good blooming. Discontinue fertilizing as summer comes to an end. Potted Bougainvilleas do better with a balanced 20-20-20 water soluble formula applied every two weeks at half the strength recommended on the packaging. | 5 Gallon - Pink Pixie Bougainvillea - A Bold, Multi-Purpose Bougainvillea, Outdoor Plant See how our 30 Day Happy & Healthy Gaurantee compares to Garden Goods Direct, Lowe's.
