12" Hanging Basket
The Bougainvillea Red Hanging Basket sports vibrant colors on woody stems. Bougainvilleas are an eye-catching vine, that do great in baskets or pruned into a shrub. However, there are so many gorgeous ways to grow and display this flowering beauty. This version comes as a hanging basket perfect to hang on your porch! This plant attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
The Bougainvillea Red Hanging Basket plant loves the sun and warmth. Once established, this plant is rather drought tolerant, as it actually prefers deep waterings every 3 to 4 weeks or so, rather than consistent watering. While establishing the plant it is important to water regularly though. In warm, tropical climates Bougainvillea has the ability to bloom all year-round! If subjected to cooler winters it is still typical to see 9 to 10 months of flowering.
About Our Plants
Our soil is custom blended and contains only the highest quality Canadian peat. We don’t try to cut cost with cheaper mixes. Additionally, all of our plants are grown with 100 to 180 day time release fertilizer so you won’t be running out of it just when the plants arrive. This is not the case with the quick release 30 day fertilizers that many other companies tend to use.
We do approximately 90% of our own liners. Since the cost is relatively inexpensive, we put twice as many liners in each container for many of the varieties. Accordingly, this makes for a much fuller plant.
All of our plants are given more than adequate spacing. For instance, most of the flowering bushes and trellis plants have 4 square feet of spacing. The Boston fern hanging baskets, for example, have 6 square feet. This allows our plants to grow as big and full as possible.
