Plant Features

Barbara Karst Bougainvillea Plants produce vibrant pink flowers on fast growing vines. She performs nicely in hanging baskets, containers and is perfect for growing on a trellis. Hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies will stop by often.

Barbara Karst Bougainvillea Plant Care Instructions: Container plants do best with regular water and fertilizer. Established plants grown in the soil only need watered if it hasn’t rained for a couple of weeks. Plants cannot climb without stems being tied or attached to a support. If it freezes in your area, and you want to overwinter a container plant, simply cut it back to 24 inches and bring the pot inside the house. Find a spot that is close to an east, south or west facing window. Keep it back a couple feet from the window. Avoid placing it near any heating registers. Allow the soil to dry between waterings. Do not give it any fertilizer while inside as this is not a time for flowering.

Barbara Karst Bougainvillea

I ordered 3 of these Bougainvillea and they all arrived intact and healthy. They are quite small so there is some growing they need to do, but I look forward to seeing them bloom this summer!
