Bougainvillea "Pixie Pink"
« on: July 03, 2012, 10:33 AM »
Collected 6 or so years ago. This has two decent fronts and I've gone back and forth on them over the last few years. I'll post the other front later.

Andy, that one is fantastic.  I have no tropicals and haven't had many in the past.  In the proper care and maintenance of bougies, do you ever defoliate?

I defoliate bougainvilleas once or twice a year down here.

Very nice, we don't get to collect bougies up here in MA.
