Bougainvillea


Bougainvillea glabra is an ornamental plant from the plant Family Nyctaginaceae.  The plant can be bushy or climbing depending on the varieties.  Climbing is aided by the presence of thorns along the length of stem. It is very popular in the tropics because of the colours of the flowers. Grafting technique can be used to produce plants with multiple flowers of multiple colours.
