Bougainvillea Salsa

Description

 Bougainvillea Salsa 

Salsa has a ruby red bract with unusual small orange flowers against dark green foliage. 

Bougainvillea are long flowering and can be adapted for a wide variety of landscaping uses. Some of these uses include topiary, hedging, hanging baskets, arbours and arches. Today’s Bougainvillea have a great range in growth habit and height. There are dwarf varieties that grow to only a metre, compact medium growers and some such as White Cascade that offer a beautiful cascading habit. Bougainvillea prefer a well drained soil and sunny position. The range of colours offers limitless combinations and a palette to choose from that would satisfy any landscape design.

  

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for:  Ideal for fences, hedging, boundary plantings, statement plantings of mass colour.

  • I grow to: 1-2m high x 1-2m wide

  • I am currently: 10-15cm high

  • Where to place me: Full sun

  • How far to space me: 2.5m

  • My features: extremely hardy, drought resistant once established, deep purple bracts 

    • Please note: At this small size, Bougainvillea have delicate roots and should be handled with care. Don't tease or disturb roots but rather water the pot well, gently invert and tap pot on the side of a hard surface so it slides out. Our recommendation is to plant our beautifully-grown Bougainvillea into a larger pot rather than directly into the ground
