|What type of care does a bougainvillea require for South Louisiana?|
|Plant it in the sun and avoid the tendency to overwater and overfertilize. Bougainvillea blooms best when it a bit thirsty and hungry! In your South Lousisiana location, it may even be necessary to restrict the root a bit to encourage less growth and more blooming. High annual rainfall and fertile soils make them want to grow vines not blooms.|
Bougainvillea can be container grown quite well. Just remember: not too big of a container. They do better when they are a bit rootbound.
