Answer: Bougainvillea loses its flowers after a few weeks of colorful display but it will bloom again in about four weeks. Bougainvilleas go through this bloom cycle all through the year in mild winter climates but in your gardening zone you'll want to take your plant indoors in the fall, when nighttime temperatures reach about 50F. In the meantime, keep it watered well and fertilize every 2-3 weeks with a half-strength dilution of liquid fertilizer such as Miracle-Gro. Enjoy your new plant!
