Bougainvillea shrubs are known most for their showy flowers and the abundance of flowers that grow around the entire shrub. This shrub is extremely versatile with how it can be used due to the many varieties. It can grow from 1 ft. to up to 20 ft. with support from a trellis. When planted in an area that receives warm sun and at least six hours of sunshine, this shrub will grow quickly. Based on the variety that you plant, you could have white, orange, pink, or magenta flowers to use as accents throughout your yard. In warm climates, like California's, these shrubs never stop blooming so there is year-round color in your landscape.

Since Bougainvilleas like sun, it also needs to get the right amount of water to sustain itself. Once established, this is a very drought tolerant shrub, but still needs a deep watering every few weeks. If you see more leaves and less blooming flowers, you can cut back on how much it is being watered and make sure that your plant is receiving the right amount of sun exposure.

Bougainvillea’s can be pruned lightly a few times during the year, especially if the shrub needs to be trained to grow a specific way in the landscape. The different varieties of this plant allow it to be used in your yard in so many different ways. Due to the eye-catching colors that this plant has to offer, it is a great option to add into your yard for accent colors and texture to contrast existing landscape. This is also a good plant to cover up bare walls or bare areas in your yard. Bougainvillea’s are easily trainable to grow in vine form on trellis’, into a small tree form, or used as a unique and bright privacy hedge. Some varieties of this plant also do well when grown in containers or planting pots in small gardens and patios.

We recommend pairing Bouganvillea La Jolla with plants such as Pittosporum Silver Sheen, Indian Laurel Columns, Fruitless Olive Trees, Japanese Boxwood (Buxus japonica), and a Podocarpus Gracilior hedge or Japanese Blueberry hedge

Text or call 323-576-4159 for specific shipping details for your location.

Do you have experts who pick out my plants?

Our team of horticulturalists and landscape architects as well as nursery trades men and women make sure that your plants are picked with optimal rooting and branching structures and are free of disease.

Do you offer planting?

We do! Planting prices will vary based on location, size of plant, and access to your space. Text or call 323-576-4159 with any planting questions.

Why should I buy from you and not my local garden center or big box retailer?

We're able to offer a much greater selection of plants and supplies due to our vast network of growing grounds and our plants and trees are only moved when they're shipped to you, without going through multiple stops, ensuring a more healthy plant. Additionally, plants are maintained with the proper irrigation and fertilization practices right before they're shipped, providing the best care and nutrients to ensure they thrive when planted. Finally, each growing location is ideally suited to build the strongest plants acclimated to the environment they will grow best in. Unlike many other nurseries, big box stores, and online sellers that may grow their plants in greenhouses or where they can achieve the fastest growth, our plants are grown where they will thrive in the future, so you have a plant that isn't just beautiful when it's delivered but beautiful well into the future.

What is your warranty period?

We offer a limited 90 day warranty for plants that we plant. The limited warranty covers plants that die as a result of disease or fungus which was derived from our growing grounds or from root balls that were root bound. The warranty does not cover damage due to watering, fertilizer, soils, or any other conditions beyond our control. We can assist you in recommending the right soils and fertilizers to help your plant thrive after you plant it. Text or call 323-576-4159 for further warranty information.

Do you deliver across the U.S. or just in California?

Yes, we are proud to offer exclusive pricing and services to our Trade partners. Contact us to find out more!

Can I come to your growing grounds and pick out my tree or plant?

While we can arrange visits for specimen trees and specialized plant material, our growing grounds are not available to visit, due to the nature of equipment and agricultural regulations. Additionally, we may not have the plant you need, growing at your nearest location, and therefore in order to provide you with the healthiest plant that will thrive at your property, we work hard behind the scenes to handle all of the logistics to ensure you have the best trees and plants with the least movement. We strive to provide the most accurate photos of plants growing at our growing grounds and if you have any questions on sizing or current conditions, please feel free to call or text us before placing your order.
