Plant Features

Royal Purple Bougainvillea Plants produce loads of pinkish-purple to deep magenta blossoms with the "true" flower being the diminutive white blossoms in the center! 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.

Royal Purple 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.

So far so good

Plants 🪴 arrived in good condition and I planted them right away as instructed. I hope they will make it to Southern Oregon Winter month. Will move them inside and we will see… saw them during a visit in California and were stunned by the beauty!

Already Blooming!

Of the Bougainvillea's I bought from them this year, although smaller than anticipated, this one bloomed fast and is just beautiful.

Bougainvillea plants

Beautiful plant, I'd order again.

From Linda | May 27, 2014

My first order

This was my first order from GrowJoy, and I'll be ordering from them again. The Bougainvillea arrived quickly and in excellent condition, for what I feel was a fair price. Weather conditions prevented planting for a couple of days but the plant remained healthy. Bougainvillea plants are very sensitive to transplanting, but this one has been in the ground for a week and shows no signs of stress.
