In February, we try to get away to a warmer climate while Joe is on school break. Our mode of transportation while in Key West is walking, and the Bougainvillea was showing up everywhere with great bursts of color.
The flower is small and white. The colorful leaves feel like paper if you rub one between your fingers.
The branches are long and woody, and they can grow up to 40 feet high. I've seen them at the nurseries here in New York, but they are small due to our short growing season.
I'm still going through the many photos that we took in Key West, so feel free to stop by later in the week for my next post.
Thank you for stopping by!
