|These tender, heat-loving, vigorous-growing vines and low shrubs sport brilliantly-colored flowers. Many types have dangerous, stout spines. Use tall-growing vines on fences, trellises, and as sprawling ground covers. Tie and intertwine vines on strong supports to prevent wind and rain damage. Use short mounding shrubs in containers, hanging baskets, and small spaces. They need heat, sun and well-drained soil. Where there is frost, place vines against a warm wall or plant in a protected place. Transplant only during warm growing season, and do not disturb fragile roots. Reduce watering and fertilizer in mid-summer to promote flowering, and in late summer to enhance winter hardiness. In Zone 10, they can bloom throughout the year.
This wide-spreading, shrubby Bougainvillea grows 1 to 2 feet high. The masses of flowers have bright, golden-yellow bracts that turn pink when mature. Prune to maintain shrub shape.
