Last year we splurged to buy this bougainvillea .
As I shared with you then, we had had dismal results with a previous attempt to grow one.
This year the plant had climbed the trellis but did not produce any blooms.
In total frustration I administered large doses of Miracle Grow. We also sprayed the vine with insecticide and trimmed away unproductive limbs.
Today after a day of rain... This was observed. Not a bad award for a little tender loving care.
It also helps to have an avid photographer in the family! So glad we dared to invest in this blooming beauty!
