Bougainvillea ‘Barbara Karst’ is a well-known and widely cultivated cultivar of Bougainvillea.


Appearance: Bougainvillea ‘Barbara Karst’ is a vigorous, evergreen vine or shrub with thorny stems. It is known for its stunning display of vibrant, deep magenta or purplish-red bracts that surround its small, white flowers. The actual flowers are relatively inconspicuous compared to the showy bracts, which are responsible for the plant’s striking appearance.

Growth habit: ‘Barbara Karst’ is a fast-growing plant that can quickly cover walls, fences, trellises, and pergolas. It can reach a height of 4.5 to 9m and spread even wider under favourable conditions.

Sun and climate requirements: Like most bougainvillea varieties, ‘Barbara Karst’ thrives in full sun and prefers warm, tropical or subtropical climates. It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from freezing temperatures.

Watering and soil: Once established, ‘Barbara Karst’ is relatively drought-tolerant, but regular watering is required during dry periods, especially in hot weather. It prefers well-draining soil and can struggle in waterlogged or poorly draining soils.

Pruning: Regular pruning is essential to maintain the shape of the plant and encourage continuous blooming. The best time to prune is after the flowering cycle, as bougainvilleas bloom on new growth.
