Description

Purple-flowered Bougainvillea glabra 'Sanderiana' and red-flowering Bougainvillea glabra 'Californiana' are absolute classics in container and winter gardens. They are more robust than the Bougainvillea spectabilis varieties in red, yellow or white (also available from Flora Toskana) and can survive wintering temperatures between 5 and 15 °C. Their abundance of flowers and duration of flowering is equal to Bougainvillea spectabilis hybrids, but their bracts are somewhat smaller. In view of the abundance of flowers, however, this does not matter. When grown as slender climbers or pruned into round globes, the full bloom almost completely covers the narrow leaves. Care tip: Pruning the thorny shoots is possible at any time, even in summer, when individual branches exceed the desired crown shape or length.
