The Q&A Archives: Climbing Bougainvilla

Question: What is the best way to train bougainvilla to climb around the outside wall of a lanai?

Answer: Deborah,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

You need to tie up some of the bougainvillea shoots to the desired location and orientation. Then periodically do some more training and trimming of undesired shoots growing in other locations.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
