Bougainvillea is a genus of thorny ornamental vines, bushes, or trees. The inflorescence consists of large colourful sepallike bracts which surround three simple waxy flowers. They grow super well here on Galveston Island! In a pot or in the ground, they will brighten any day with their flowers!
We have the best colors of the bougainvilleas here on the island. Here are some great tips on how to create the tropical look from AgriLife Extension.
