Thank you.

I have never been a big fan of bougainvilleas... partially because their growth habit makes them so much work. But I live these trees :) Probably the greatest compliment I can give is that they don't look like bougainvilleas :)

What do you mean of so much work ?

Because I don't train them for the sake of the flowers but a bonsai. And if they bear flowers, it's bonus...and it's true that it's not easy to train Bougenvillea as good bonsai and give flowers.

At least the bougainvilleas in my yard throw off 3' woody, thorny sprouts in all directions that need to be trimmed several times per year :) That is - if you are going for the trimmed hedge look. I have some that I just let grow - and these are the ones that bloom so nicely.
