The bougainvillea in Palm Springs have been in full bloom for the past couple of months. They are now starting to drop their beautiful colored leaves and turning green. A wet winter has really given us some beautiful blooms in the mountains, unfortunately that provides fuel for the fire season. Also those with allergies have been suffering more than normal. Luckily it doesn't bother me.
Absolutely beautiful Alan. Thank you for the pictures.
I'm think those photos are gorgeous.
Alan,what kind of fertilizer and bug killer do you use. Those flowers are just breathtaking. Do those flowers have large thorns? Do you have to cut them back? What other colors do they come in? When did you plant them? Does the frost kill them? Will they grow up north? Do rabbits eat them?
Wachsen Bouganvilla in Deutschland?
Kein Züchten von bouganvilla in Deutschland
I don't fertilize them, I don't spray bug killer on them. You basically just plant them and leave them alone. You do have to cut them back occasionally, which is no fun because they do have thorns that can grow over an inch long. I have actually had pool blow up toys get blown into the bougainvillea and get punctured. We do not have frost here. The coldest it has ever been in the nineteen years I have lived here is 29 Fahrenheit, but a prolonged freeze would definitely kill them. They come in the colors I've shown, plus all shades in between. I planted them fourteen years ago to keep intruders from jumping over my fence.
Oh, yes one more thing. I eat the rabbits.
Alan, these are so pretty !!!! My garden is battered from a storm last night..
I especially like the yellow ones. I haven't seen too many of them. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a nice weekend.
My favorite color preference is the firey red one. The color palette is striking, bold and beatifully flamboyant. Your selection of colors adds significantly to the decor and eye enhancing vistas of your backyard patio. Matched with the clashing subtle hues of blues produced by your swimming pool significantly enhances the artistic aura of your refined taste.
Garet I hope you wear high boots with that cowboy hat. You need them.
Duh, whadhe jess say?
I's dinks dat means he loks it, Maynerd.
Go ahead, admit it, You meantto say "High Heels", not high boots.
