Bougainvillea ‘Miami Pink’

Bougainvillea ‘Miami Pink’ is a moderate to fast grower with profuse hot-pink bracts.  An incredible branching habit gives this variety tons of color during blooming season.  Leaves are mid to dark green and ovate.

Characteristics

Miami Pink‘s amazing branching habit lends itself to be suited for almost any application such as on a trellis, or grown as a bush, standard, or hanging basket.  Due to the high number of blooming branches, you can almost always find color on a Miami Pink bougainvillea during blooming season.

Mature Size

20-30’ tall X 6-9’ wide. Can be pruned to stay smaller.

Exposure

Full, direct sun.  A minimum of 5 hours a day.

Water Usage

Low once established.  Water regularly after planting to encourage a deep root system, then reduce to only as needed.  Bougainvillea are drought-tolerant plants and perform beautifully in any xeriscape (Landscaping that doesn’t require a lot of water), or other environmental design minimizing the need for water use.

Fertilize

Use BOUGAIN® Quick Release Bloom Boost every 30 days.

Trimming and Pinching

After each blooming cycle (approximately every 4-6 weeks), trim or pinch the soft tips of young plants stems to encourage new growth. Pinching means removing the growing tip.  This will create multiple offshoots, thicken the plant’s appearance, and yield a more colorful bougainvillea.

Planting or Re-potting

Take care not to disturb the bougainvillea’s delicate root system during planting or re-potting.  Never pull on the stem of the plant as their weak roots can be easily severed.  We highly recommended that you plant bougainvillea in their nursery pots with the bottom of the pot cut out.  Use a quick-drain soil suitable for bougainvillea like BGI Select Soil.

Cold Hardiness

Performs best in hardiness zones 9-11, but can be used as annual color in colder climates.

Color Season

In the Southeastern U.S., Bougainvillea ‘Miami Pink’ flowers most heavily from October through June, but can flower sporadically year-round if dry conditions exist.  Evergreen.
