Bougainvillea shrubs are great in the southwest desert
Bougainvillea bushes are great in the Southwest Desert. One of the new “must-haves” added to houses in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Phoenix is Bougainvillea spectabilis. This beautiful plant has different colors, including purple, red, white and pink. It can be used to enhance many types of landscape and design options. I decided to create this blog to list some key facts about this plant and provide advice on whether it is suitable for your life in the Arizona desert. There are several bougainvillea plants, including vines, ground cover, and shrub forms. These shrubs grow quickly and require room to grow. When mature, they can reach 15 feet in height and 20 feet in diameter. In full sunlight, they will bloom like crazy and can make the landscape look so colorful. The leaves are dense, evergreen, oval, with large spines, and grow best in full sunlight. They are evergreen trees, but they will freeze below 28 degrees, but you can reduce them severely and they will become bigger next year. These shrubs are drought tolerant, but they work best when they are watered 2-3 times a week in summer. Check out our recommended watering schedule at azlawns.com/watering. Bougainvillea is also non-allergenic and susceptible to whiteflies. They also have a good root system, which makes them difficult to transplant. The following are some of the advantages and disadvantages of bougainvillea shrubs; advantages; rapid growth of 1000 flowers to create bright colors, very suitable for large areas, non-allergic disadvantages, large amounts of shedding (not close to the pool) large thorns are not suitable for small areas and other desert adaptable plants Than, maintenance costs are high.
