Answer: Your bougainvillea will need some sturdy supports to grow up a wall. Wire is fine, but you'll have to take care in attaching the stems so they have room to expand as the plant matures. Just tie the stems with a soft material that won't damage thebark. You'll have to re-attach support ties as the material disintegrates, so check the ties when you climb the ladder to prune the plant back. Mature bougainvillea's are spectacular in the summertime!
