Transform any vertical space in the sun with Fire Opal Bougainvillea, an extraordinary new look for this tropical climbing plant! The huge pumpkin-orange blooms (actually bracts, but who's counting?) arise over 3 long seasons in such numbers that at times you may have trouble finding the foliage beneath its blanket of color!

Fire Opal comes to us from a grower in Puerto Rico who has been breeding the best Bougainvillea for home gardens for many years now. You'll find that Fire Opal grows contentedly in a large container as well as garden soil, so you can create a living archway anywhere you want in the garden, on the patio, and even around the front door! These plants are bred to establish very quickly and grow like crazy, making the most of each season.

Fire Opal reaches anywhere from 10 to 14 feet high in the garden, with a spread of 5 to 8 feet. In containers, of course, it stays much smaller. But wherever you put it, you can expect it to take off quickly and keep going until nipped back by frost. In frost-free areas, it will continue into winter.

Bougainvillea requires a regular watering schedule until it becomes well-established, after which it becomes much more drought tolerant. It likes acidic soil (although any well-drained type, even the moderately dry, will do!) and balanced fertilizer. Add fertilizer and do any desired pruning early in the growing season. Fire Opal is a good choice for coastal plantings, where it thrives on the warm weather and tolerates the salty air. Pests tend to ignore it, and of course it doesn't mind heat and humidity. Just keep it out of the cold and shade, and it will thrive!

For everything from planter boxes to tropical borders to greenhouses and indoor containers, Fire Opal is the best way to add round after round of unusual orange color! Zones 9-11. Pack of 3 plants.
