Tah Dah....Look at me!

Bougainvilleas are so vain and always want to be noticed and be the center of attention. When variegated bougs like this one start to bloom, they certainly do catch your eye. In full bloom they are dazzling...almost like flashing neon lights at casinos.

Hi Jon!
Thanks for visiting me!
I am horrible with plants. It's a running joke in my family that I kill plants, no matter how hard I try. Therefore, I must garden vicariously through sites like yours. Hehe. Great job!

Oh never knew you could get variagated Bougainvilleas either. Stunning!

No, no. You've got it all wrong. The bougainvillea is usually subtle (and sparse) in its bloom.

To Anonymous re your comment:
I do not have it all wrong when it comes to bougainvilleas. I have grown them for years and have a large collection of many varieties. There is nothing subtle or sparse about my bougs in bloom. See my slideshow pics. You must grow yours indoors in Alaska to have such a strange opinion. But, thanks for visiting my blog and sharing your comment.
