I'm Nell Foster, and this is how to use bougainvillea for flower landscaping. Bougainvillea comes in a wide array of colors, most of them very bright. It's a very popular landscaping plant here in southern California. It's drought tolerant and sun loving. This is my bougainvillea Barbara Karst which I have trained in to a tree form. I also have one growing up and over the garage that is more of a vine. It grows up and over. Beautiful. You can use them on trellises, you can use them on walls, over arbors. They're very versatile. It's just a very vigorous growing plant. I have also seen then as hedges. But they don't bloom as much as a hedge and it's a little more maintenance as a hedge. But you can use them as a hedge and I've just seen them on banks just wildly growing just wild burst of color. Just gorgeous. So if you want a lot of ooh and ah in your landscape then bougainvillea is the plant for you.
