Elizabeth Angus Bougainvillea

Availability: Out of stock

Bold, in your face color and impressive form, the Elizabeth Angus Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea 'Elizabeth Angus') is a heat-loving flowering shrub that displays vivid purple flower-like petals, called bracts, that smother these plants! Forming upright vining stems and multiple climbing branches, these plants can be kept as climbers, trained into an ornamental tree form, or pruned as a low-growing shrub.

These broadleaf evergreens offer year-round color with their glossy deep green leaves and become especially lit up when the dramatic three-petaled bracts form! Each highlighted by a pale yellow stamen in the centers, no one will be able to take their eyes off them each year! Because these lovelies bloom throughout the spring, summer and through fall because of the long-lasting bracts!

Fast-growing Elizabeth Angus is evergreen throughout USDA growing zones 9 through 11, and tolerates almost any warm climate condition, moderately moist soil and loves the heat and sun! Botanically a vine, these form woody stems that can be trained into trees and shrubs with some pruning. Growing into an 8-12 feet mature height and a 4-6 foot wide woody vine!

Planting and Application:

Bougainvillea can be trained up a stair railing or fence to add screening while hiding an ugly chain link or eyesore on the other side. Or train over a balcony partition and covered bench for shade and privacy, plus color! Add height to the garden by training these flowering vines over obelisks, and trellis or let them cascade over an embankment and retaining wall for long-lasting color. This color lends itself to cut flower gardens, poolside plantings, and pollinator borders too!

Elizabeth Angus has small thorny protrusions and can grapple without causing damage to siding or walls. Their taproots make Bougainvillea ideal additions to Rock Gardens, xeriscaping designs and hot regions, because once established, they need little water except during extreme drought. Train into a tree for a spectacular specimen in large planters, porch pots and throughout the landscape as focal points and major curb appeal!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Bougainvillea grows in full sun and moderately moist soil, especially while plants are establishing. After they are established, these become very xeric and tolerate drier conditions. For the longest-lasting bloom and healthiest plants, be sure to provide water and a 3-4 inch layer of mulch over the soil surface to hold in moisture and insulate the roots from heat. Prune after flowering to shape and train as desired. Northern growers can enjoy these flowering vines in pots and bring them when it gets below 40 degrees.

  • Full Sun
  • Moderate Moisture
  • Any Well-Drained Soil & Mulched Sites
  • Prune After Flowering
  • Indoor/Outdoor Container Plants
