Bougainvillea Tahiti offers a show of unique orange hued flowers that age to an attractive rosy-mauve, providing a fantastic show of color, especially in warmer climates. These are tough, tropical vines that satisfy the hunger for color in the yard! Bougainvillea ‘Tahitian Dawn’ is a hybrid native to South America and thrive here in Houston. We love to plant Bougainvillea several ways, and they are steadfast climbers, so they are ideal for adding a profusion of colors to walls, fences, arbors, gazebos and other structures, they can even climb onto roofs and into tree tops! If you love summer color, you will love this plant!
Bougainvillea Tahiti has a fast growth rate and brings year-round seasonal interest to any landscape. These plants love a hot and humid climate and tolerate poor soils, so they like to grow in Houston. Once established, these bougainvilleas have low to moderate watering needs and are drought tolerant. For the showiest flowers, we recommend planting them in a sunny location because these plants love full sun exposure. The proper fertilizer is beneficial for development. Big Tex Tree Nursery carries the best fertilizers for treating Houston’s dense soil, so be sure to pick some up at any of nurseries throughout Houston.
