Many of our Bougainvilleas are currently between blooms.
To encourage blooming, allow your plants to get almost to the point of wilt before watering. This will encourage bloom. Overwatering causes growth, but not bloom.
We specialize in the growing of topiary shrubs and Bougainvillea. Our goal is to provide the healthiest, heartiest plants possible. We accomplish this by beginning with superior varieties, using the highest-grade soil mixes and fertilizers, and then shaping and pruning each plant by hand.

Tips for Vibrant Color. To help your Bougainvillea achieve its full color potential during season, follow these simple steps:
Regularly feed your plant with a balanced fertilizer high in iron and other micronutrients;
Ensure proper watering by using this simple rule of thumb: If few leaves, but some color, not enough water; If lots of leaves, but little color, too much water; If a combination of healthy leaves and color, just right;
Maximize color by pinching or pruning the ends of your Bougainvillea after each bloom cycle, since Bougainvillea will only show color on new growth.
WATER: Bougainvillea are drought-tolerant, requiring infrequent watering once established. Bring the soil to visual dryness, and then water the soil thoroughly (avoid frequent, light watering since this will promote a weak and shallow root system).
