Sometimes referred to as “paper flowers” Bougainvilleas flower almost year-round. They thrive in warm, dry climates so you will see them in Southern United States, South America and in Hawaii.
We are lucky enough to have a HUGE Bougainvillea on display at Sherbondy’s Greenhouse located at 319 16th Ave, Council Bluffs, IA 51503. It is always a treat to visit this massive display of blooms.
I’ve also photographed Bougainvillea in Hawaii.
I found a great website with information on Bougainvilleas here. Are these one of your favorites? It would definitely be a perk of living further south!
