All Bougainvillea are dropping, have dropped, or are re-growing leaves for the winter.

We offer BOUGAINVILLEA in 1" Starter Plugs that are 3"-7" tall, in small sizes great to put up into a 4" pot or take 2-3 for a gallon pot or hanging basket. We also offer some varieties in 1-Gal, 3-Gal, and 5-Gal. size plant.

NOTE: ALL BOUGAINVILLEA DROP LEAVES FOR FALL & WINTER AND THEN REGROW THEM...

** WE HAVE STOPPED SHIPPING ANYTHING LARGER THAN FULL GAL IN BOUGAINVILLEA, AS THEY HAVE A TENDENCY TO BREAK LIMBS...LARGER SPECIMENS IN STOCK CAN BE PICKED UP AT NURSERY ONLY!!***


Shipping: Plugs are in small cups and need to be planted in these cups with roots able to extend from the bottom hole or from the top. Plant plug in cup in good potting soil and keep moist and in partial shade for 10 days or so, removing from the cups could damage tender roots and voids any guarantee. Picture of starter plant in my hand gives you an idea of what size they are. Long bloom time from spring thru fall You can use liquid fertilizer every other week or a slow release fertilizer a couple of times a season This plant is very easy to grow, it will tolerate all types of soil and watering, although enjoys slightly acid (5.5-6.5pH)soil and a dry/wet type of watering. Remember that Bougainvilleas will grow new shoots and get larger with good water and fertilizer, while restricting water and fertilizer will have a tendency to initiate blooming.

Plants are shipped out on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and sometimes on Saturdays....Most plants will be sent bare root wrapped in wet sphagnum moss and a plastic bag wrapped in tape for security, and sent via USPS Priority Mail. When plants arrive be sure and soak in water overnight and then plant. I take great care in wrapping plants to assure they arrive safely, but sometimes the Post Office gets careless and damages the package(See “Damage” under shipping).

Bougainvillea Small Leaf Purple-Blooms Purple with Green Foliage-Tropical Zone 9+

. Plugs are starter plants with approximately 1” in diameter by 1 ¼+” deep roots in plastic cups. The cups are to be clipped individually and planted in the cup so as not to disturb the roots. The cups have several holes in them to accommodate the roots plus growing out of the top. Years ago, we noticed that in removing the cups folks were damaging the roots, which resulted in death of the plant at least 50% of the time. We grow Plugs (3-5” tall), Lg Plugs (slightly larger and usually branched), Full Gal (multi-branched 12-18”+): THESE ARE ALL THAT WE SHIP. AFTER THE FIRST YEAR OR TWO, BOUGAINVILLEA GROWS IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT IS BRITTLE AND BREAKS. NOT GOOD FOR SHIPPING! We also grow Bougainvillea in 3 gal, 5 gal, and sometimes larger, but they must be picked up at the nursery-WE WILL NOT SHIP THESE SIZES. You can use slow release fertilizer a couple of times a season. This plant is very easy to grow, it will tolerate all types of soil and watering. To promote new growth add fertilizer and water, to bloom, slack off of both.
