The Q&A Archives: Care of Bougainvillea

Question: What care would be necessary for a small variegated Bougainvillea "Raspberry Ice" during the winter?

Answer: Bougainvilleas winter over very nicely indoors if they kept in a cool (57-68 degrees F) and bright location. Reduce watering, and when the foliage drops, do not water at all. Cut the plant back in March and repot it.
