Bougainvillea is the bold luminous flower that celebrates life even during those hideous steel grey cloudy days. Its a rampant knock out plant. It requires pruning to keep it under control. Young plants may require tip-pinching instead of pruning to help them fill out and grow bushy.
If you get pricked with a bougainvillea it hurts. And you can't just mow over the bastard - thorns are everywhere. They put out random spurs up to 2 inches long. What do you do? Live with it - the flower is a show stopper. Young bougainvillea branches have smaller thorns, and fewer of them. Wear gardening gloves, and avoid reaching your arm into the plant.
Bougainvilleas are flexible. They can be trained in many different ways including as prostrate bougainvilleas.
Bougainvilleas are straightforward plants to grow.
THINGS TO KNOW
1. Frost-free climate but will recover from a light frost.
2. Likes most soil types provided they've got good drainage.
3. Loves full sun - half a day's sun they'll still thrive.
4. Never add too much nitrogen (that will reduce the flower). The key ingredient is potassium or potash. Hibiscus fertiliser is perfect

A mix of plants suitable for a vertical garden located in the shade. A plant mix that varies in texture and colour to create depth and interest.
In Australia this plant mix would be suitable for a south facing wall. The plants could also tolerate light morning sun. But definitely not strong sun. These plants will require watering every day during really hot summer days. You may want to consider installing drip irrigation. But hand watering is equally effective. Garden Beet's vertical gardens in Melbourne are all hand watered.
We sell a Large Vertical Garden Plant Mix and a Standard Vertical Garden Plant Mix. They are both the same price and are the same plants. The only difference between the two mixes is the pot size of the plants.
Most systems only require the standard mix. Wally Pockets however need larger plants to create a fuller appearance. We therefore include less plants in the Wally mix but the plants we supply are larger than the standard mix.
LARGE MIX - we send enough plants to fill at maturity
STANDARD MIX - we send enough plants to fill at maturity
