Answer: Bougainvilleas flower on new growth and they flower on a 6-8 week cycle. They grow, bloom, rest, then grow, bloom and rest again. You can prune after each flush of blooms. Now that you have cut yours back you should expect lots of new growth and most of that should flower for you. Bougainvilleas flower best when they are heat and water stressed so cut back on the frequency of your watering, but be sure to water deeply when you do apply water. I think this will help!
