The Q&A Archives: Bougainvillea

Question: I was wondering where can you get a bougainvillea plant.

Answer: Bougainvilleas are tropical in nature and do not tolerate frost so in your cold winter region, you'll may have difficulty finding one. Look in the houseplant section or greenhouse section of a large nursery, or you may be able to order from the internet. These plants do not make good houseplants, but will be happy in a heated greenhouse.

Best wishes with your new plant!
