Add a splash of vibrant color to your garden with our premium Bougainvillea Flower Seeds. Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea spp.) is a stunning ornamental plant known for its brilliant, papery bracts that come in a variety of colors, including magenta, purple, red, pink, orange, and white. Ideal for trellises, fences, containers, and hanging baskets, Bougainvillea brings a tropical flair to any landscape. Our high-quality seeds ensure you can grow these hardy and eye-catching plants with ease, whether you're a novice gardener or an experienced horticulturist.

Key Features:

  • Vibrant Colors: Bougainvillea produces vivid, long-lasting bracts that add a burst of color to gardens, patios, and indoor spaces.
  • Drought-Tolerant: These hardy plants thrive in dry conditions and require minimal watering, making them perfect for water-wise gardens.
  • Fast-Growing: Bougainvillea is known for its rapid growth, quickly covering structures with its lush foliage and bright bracts.
  • Versatile Plant: Ideal for growing on trellises, fences, arbors, or in containers and hanging baskets.
  • Low Maintenance: Bougainvillea is relatively easy to care for, requiring little attention once established.

Planting Instructions:

  1. Seed Preparation: Soak Bougainvillea seeds in warm water for 24 hours to soften the seed coat and improve germination rates.

  2. Timing: Plant seeds in late winter to early spring, giving them ample time to establish before the growing season.

  3. Soil Preparation: Choose a well-draining soil mix. Bougainvillea prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil with a pH of 5.5-7.0. Amend heavy soils with sand or perlite to improve drainage.

  4. Sowing Depth: Sow the seeds about 1/4 inch deep in seed trays or small pots filled with a well-draining seed-starting mix. Lightly cover the seeds with soil.

  5. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Use a spray bottle to mist the soil lightly to avoid overwatering.

Growing Conditions:

  1. Light: Bougainvillea thrives in full sun, requiring at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and bract production.

  2. Temperature: These plants prefer warm climates and are best grown in temperatures between 70-85°F (21-29°C). Protect from frost and cold drafts.

  3. Humidity: Bougainvillea can tolerate low humidity but thrives in moderately humid environments.

Care Tips:

  • Watering: Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot and poor growth. Reduce watering in the winter months.
  • Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) to encourage vibrant bract production.
  • Pruning: Prune regularly to maintain shape and promote bushier growth. Remove dead or damaged stems and trim back excessive growth to encourage flowering.
  • Support: Provide a trellis, fence, or arbor for Bougainvillea to climb. Tie young stems gently to supports as they grow.

Pest and Disease Management:

  • Pests: Monitor for common pests such as aphids, caterpillars, and spider mites. Use organic insecticidal soap or neem oil to control infestations.
  • Diseases: Ensure good air circulation and avoid overwatering to prevent fungal diseases such as powdery mildew and root rot.
