Scarlett O’Hara is a vigorous evergreen climber with masses of magenta red bracts.
It likes a warm sunny, frost free spot in well drained soil. Great for covering fences ,pergolas or shed.
They can also be kept in a pot or trained as a topiary or espalier.
Bougainvillea are generally pest and disease free and require little maintenance once established other than pruning to keep to the size and shape you prefer.
To maximize flowering time ,give them a light prune after each flush of flowers and apply a dose of slow release fertiliser (high in Potassium) at the start of each season to keep them looking and flowering at their best.
Bougainvillea prefer a tropical or sub-tropical climate ,so are ideally suited to SE Queensland
Scarlett O’Hara will grow to approximately 4x4m but can be kept more compact with pruning.
