Bougainvillea 'Alexandra' 5L Potted Plant 1.4M Tall

A real taste of hot lazy summers, Bougainvillea grow freely in hot countries around the Mediterranean with their rich colours smothering walls and balconies in the hot sun, but they also make great summer plants right here in the UK too. The lovely magenta pink variety is one of the more compact and floriferous varieties and performs well at lower temperatures in winter too. The colour comes, in fact, from bracts, not flowers themselves. The bracts turn brightest magenta pink in summer whereas the flower itself is quite easily missed - a small creamy flower, which looks like the eye of the bracts. The tropical look of Bougainvillea instantly transports you to sunny Mediterranean climes and memories of holidays perhaps. This large sized plant will give you instant colour and impact and transform your patio in the summer. 'Alexander' is one of the go to varieites, as it's deep pink/purple bracts holds their colour well into autumn. In winter this must be protected from frosts, ideally in a light conservatory.
