Plant Features

James Walker Bougainvillea Plants offer large clusters of bright fuchsia colored paper-like leaves that surround its tiny white flowers. Creates a stunning display in containers, on arbors or trellises, or spilling over fences! Paperflower plants are flowering machines! They put out a big explosion of color, drop their bracts and then flower again. This is repeated all season long. Bougainvillea are surprisingly easy to grow, and their needs are minimal - full sun, well-drained soil and intermittent irrigation as they are drought tolerant. Hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies will stop by often. Can be grown as a houseplant.

I love all the Bougainvillea I bought from Grow Joy. Arrived healthy and are growing very well on my back patio.

I ordered 5 Bougainville plants. I received 4 plants and 1 rootless stick. The stick clearly was dead when shipped, and it was unlabeled. I was refunded for the stick.

Beautiful Bougainvillea

I love bougainvillea and was hesitant to purchase online without seeing in person first. I was pleasantly surprised when I received this, as it was packaged well and already in bloom. If you’re a bougainvillea lover like I am, I highly recommend for yours. These do come a little smaller, but ordering multiple colors and planting all together will give you a beautiful mix of colors in any basket.

Gorgeous, very bright pink

I bought mine last year and this year it's really taking off. The bright pink clusters look amazing and the overall form is very ornamental.

Great plant

From Scott | April 17, 2020


I’m working on a "living wall” and have decided on one of every colored bougainvillea. GrowJoy ended up being my one stop shop. The selection amazing! Don’t let the 2” pot confuse you - the plants I received were 6”s tall and very healthy.
