The Tree Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea arborea) is in all its splendor now in S. Florida. A true species Bougainvillea that grows in tree form usually with multiple trunks. It can attain a height of 20 feet or more and only has light purple to lavender bracts. Unlike its hybrid cousins, which have many different colors and grow in shrub to vining form. However, just like its hybrid cousins, all Bougainvilleas make excellent nectar sources for butterflies, as well as hummingbirds.
Richard Lyons Nursery has this Tree Bougainvillea in 3gal. containers.
