Covered in Brilliant Tri-Colored Blooms!

Few ornamentals rival the highly prized hues of the Sundown Orange ‘Bougainvillea.’ This vibrant tropical vine offers three truly stunning stages of color, each bright and fiery as a summer sunset! The flowers themselves are delicate and white, while the intense color is provided by surrounding bracts. These papery, petal-like leaves start off as hot orange, turn to bright coral, and fade to a deep salmon pink. Large clusters of vivid colors are densely packed against deep green foliage, creating one of the most stunning displays a bougainvillea can offer.

This native of South America is often seen spilling over archways and verandas of adobe homes. You can expect a huge splash of color from this show-stopping tropical vine!

Incredibly Versatile Container Plant
The Sundown Orange ‘Bougainvillea,’ with its long arching and pliable vines, is coveted by bonsai enthusiasts for the way it responds to pruning. This perennial is easily trained; you get to decide the shape and size it will take! If you’d prefer it to be quaint and shrub-like for your patio, it is easily kept compact in container.  For more height, train the woody vines to twist into trunk-like braids to create a small flowering tree. Or, allow it to take off up a trellis, and brighten up any corner of your porch with flame-colored frills of bloom!

If you have the space for more impact, let it branch out from its container and support it up a wall, or easily drape it over an entranceway. Imagine inviting guests into your home through a bright canopy of color!

The Sundown Orange ‘Bougainvillea’ is easily pruned any time of year, so simply cut it back before temperatures begin to lower and bring it inside for winter. It is sure to return with another showy display of blooms in spring!

Unique Choice for Hanging Baskets
Since the growth of this vine isn’t necessarily upright, it can effortlessly trail down the sides of hanging planters. It’s a truly unique choice; the vines will seem to be pouring out color from their long, elegant tresses. Unlike pansies and petunias that live for just one season, if stored inside for winter, this perennial will return to adorn your porch year after year!

Fast Growing Vine Offers Quick, Colorful Coverage
The sky is the limit with what this vigorous vine can offer your landscape, from privacy, to shade, to groundcover. It grows fast without being invasive, and in one season will provide warm regions a blanket of color, for virtually any sunny location you choose! It will quickly climb a pergola or arbor providing your family privacy and shade. Train it to cover fences for a dense and luscious wall of dark green foliage and bright orange blooms. Easily lead it through porch railings to create privacy on your deck, while you’ll have a close-up view of the butterflies and humming birds admiring the blooms!

This sun-loving vine thrives in hot and sunny conditions and will be evergreen when planted in the ground in warm regions. Plant several in a row and maintain a privacy hedge for your home, and enjoy month after month of bright and fiery color from your gorgeous living border!

Easy and Adaptable Ornamental
This beautiful vine is strong, and its blossoms hang tough through windy weather. It is deer resistant, pest resistant, and handles drought with ease. It is tolerant of most soil types. It needs only good drainage and plenty of sun, and it will supply bloom after bloom of color, bright as a sunset sky!

My plant seems is pretty healthy, but I was disappointed at the size of the plant. I could have gotten as much bigger one here for less money.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sundown Orange Bougainvillea

Sundown Orange Bougainvillea Planting Diretions

The Sundown Orange Bougainvillea (BOUGAINVILLEA 'Sundown Orange') is a beautifully decorative vine that can be grown in many forms. It can be staked and formed like the trunk of a tree, trellised for a climbing look or even utilized as a hanging basket plant! The vine is meant for warmer USDA zones such as 9-11 if being planted outside but can be potted and brought inside or patio kept for colder zones 4-11. The fast growing, full sun loving, non-invasive vine will fully mature to heights/widths of 20-30 feet so make sure there is ample space and something the vine can climb on. The beautiful color comes in three stages on the vine. The blooms are delicate white with an intense surrounding color on the “bracts.” The papery, petal-like leaves will begin as hot orange and transition to bright coral and then fade into a salmon pink color.

Planting Directions (in ground): Bougainvilleas do best in a full sun location. Try and find somewhere that will offer at least 6 hours of direct sun every day. Ensure your drainage is good, plants do not care to be in areas where water may collect for prolonged periods. Bougainvilleas like to climb as they are a vine so make sure it has something like a fence or trellis to grow properly. If growing as a hedge, space them 18-20 inches apart.

1) Make your hole 2-3 times the width and just as deep as the root system.
2) Bougainvilleas like a slightly acidic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.0 for the best results. An inexpensive soil testing kit can easily help you determine the pH range of your soil. 
3) Carefully remove the vine from its container and lightly comb the roots with your hands to help free up some of the roots.
4) Position the plant and then begin back filling the hole with a 60/40 ratio of your native soil to gardening soil. Tamp down lightly as you fill to prevent any air pockets from forming.
5) Water the planting site when finished to settle the soil then broadcast mulch around the base to maintain soil moisture and keep competing growth such as grass or weeds away.
*Tip: Limestone can assist with increasing the pH range of your soil whereas sulfur will help lower it.

Planting Directions (potted):
1) Select a pot that is 1-2 sizes larger than the container the plant arrived in with ample drainage holes on the bottom.
2) Choose a potting soil mix with the correct pH level for the best success (5.5 to 6.0)
3) Add a little soil to the bottom of the container first so once the tree has been completely potted, there will be at least a one inch gap from the lid of the pot. This makes for easy watering without any mess.
4) Tamp down the soil around the rootball as you fill to ensure no air pockets have formed.
5) Water to settle the soil completely and place it in an area that will receive full sun (6+ hours every day).

Watering: Water the bougainvillea as needed. The best thing is a consistently moistened soil but NOT overly saturated. Too much water can weaken the vine and cause excess leaf growth in place of the decorative color you’d expect.

For a potted bougainvillea, use your index finger to determine if more water is needed. Stick it into the soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around. If there is still moisture present, leave it be a bit longer. If it has dried out, water until you see it escaping the drainage holes and stop.

Pruning: Your bougainvillea will respond to pruning greatly when done properly. Pruning is typically done in the late fall or early winter season. Some light trimming will keep the vine trained to a certain visual habit. Trimming removes smaller materials and gives the form a certain silhouette as well as maintain the shape. Hedge planted bougainvilleas will require some extensive pruning unless they have been properly trained along a trellis or other vertical support systems. You can remove dead wood/branches as they appear. Pruning the tips of the wood just after a bud node encourages the formation of new branches to form at the pruning junction.

Potted vines should have their tips pinched off monthly during their active growing season to encourage more branching of the vine. Pruning should be done after winter with sterilized clippers. Rubbing alcohol works perfectly for sterilization.

Fertilizing: During the blooming season your bougainvillea will respond well to monthly applications of fertilizer. The best results have been from 6-8-10 formulas which still allow enough nitrogen for healthy growth but also a boost of phosphorous to encourage good blooming. Discontinue fertilizing as summer comes to an end. Potted bougainvilleas do better with a balanced 20-20-20 water soluble formula applied every two weeks at half the strength recommended on the packaging.
