The Q&A Archives: Bougainvillea Changing Color

Question: Regarding Calfornia Gold Bougainvillea, do the flowers begin the orange color and fade off into a pink or do they fade off into a lighter orange or yellowish, dusty gold?

Answer: The California Gold should remain in the yellow or gold range. Exactly how one would describe the color is, as is so often the case, a matter of interpretation, but it does not change to pink as some other varieties may. I hope this answers your question.
