The Bougainvillea is more commonly known as a creeper but there is a variant of the Bougainvillea which is a little tree in which the bark is beige-grey and with age it will become furrowed and gnarly, they can be found to have flowers which are clustered in threes and the true flower is white in the centre surrounded by three colourful bright papery bracts (red, purple, hot pink, magenta, orange, light pink, yellow and white). You will find these flowers from summer until autumn if the plants get enough light and heat. The leaves on the Bougainvillea are oval and positioned in an alternate pattern. Due to the Bougainvillea’s ability to handle pruning well it makes it well suited to be a bonsai as well as their fast growing pace.

 

It is best to plant your Bougainvillea or sow your Bougainvillea seed in early spring to early summer  to allow time for the roots to become established before cooler weather sets in.

 

Bougainvillea bonsai care guidelines;

Due to the Bougainvillea needing high temperatures for producing flowers it is best suited for full sun outside during the growing season (spring to summer) and in autumn to winter taken inside into a warm room with plenty sunlight.

With watering the Bougainvillea requires watering thoroughly when the soil gets dry but do avoid constant wetness as this can cause root rot and other fungal problems. Fertilizing should be done once a month with solid organic fertilizer or if you prefer a liquid fertilizer, fertilize once a week spring to summer and once every two weeks in autumn and winter.

When pruning cut the shoots after flowering, leaving two leaves on each mand prune twigs and branches in autumn or winter. Should you require the plant to flower don’t pinch or trim the Bougainvillea too much in summer. It is possible to use wiring but with a young Bougainvillea as it is more flexible and less likely to break like a mature Bougainvillea. Beware of thorns.

 

Repotting can take place every two to three years when a Bougainvillea is young and when the Bougainvillea is larger you can repot every three to five years. Please note the roots of a Bougainvillea are very thin and delicate so care must be taken when repotting to not damage or break the roots off. Take your time to untangle the roots.
