The Q&A Archives: Purple Queen Bougainvillea, hibiscus
Question: last year i purchased two of the above plants, bougainvillea being my favourite with attractive colours. i planted them in planter boxes since i like them by the outside pool deck.I left them all winter outside and now this year they are not growing , i see dry dead stems. where did i go wrong? I also purchased Hibiscus and planted in the ground this also died. ??? any suggestions? thanks Shen
Answer: Unfortunately, both of these plants are tropical plants and will not survive freezing weather. I think they are both dead due to excess cold during the winter. I'm sorry about your plants.
