Re: bougainvillea

They thrive outdoors here, Ceres. We have a purplish one that has snaked up our starfruit tree and arched over to the house. I want it to spread over the house roof--ala houses in Santa Barbara, California--and provide both color and summer insolation.

Bougainvillea hanging baskets is a good choice

I have a variegated Bougainvillea that I have had for many, many yrs. It
was one of the first tropicals I purchased that I wintered over. It has a nice
strong rose color bloom. The challenge I have had was trying to move it
outdoors from inside & vice versa without it losing all its foliage. It has
always redressed itself with new foliage, however. I had a professional
nurseryman tell me it always happen to him also. Do you ever move yours indoors, Jim?
