There are many good reasons why it is becoming increasingly difficult to encounter a landscape in Tucson that doesn’t include at least one bougainvillea. These lush, tropical shrubs are vibrantly colorful and exceptionally easy to grow.
Mainly popular for its display of intense, apricot-peachy-orange color from spring through fall, ‘rainbow gold’ bougainvillea makes a terrific backdrop when trellised against a wall or fence, performs well whether in the ground or in containers, is fairly drought tolerant, and loves the summer heat! While Bougainvillea is known to be frost tender, it will grow rapidly with the onset of warmth in spring, quickly making up for time spent in winter dormancy.
