Bougainvillea ‘Tropical Rainbow’ is a captivating and colourful cultivar of Bougainvillea. Here are some key characteristics and information about this specific variety:

Appearance: Bougainvillea ‘Tropical Rainbow’ is admired for its stunning and vibrant display of multicoloured bracts. The bracts come in a mix of beautiful hues, including shades of pink, orange, red, purple, and other variations, creating a rainbow-like effect.

Growth habit: ‘Tropical Rainbow’ is a vigorous and fast-growing vine or shrub that can quickly cover walls, fences, trellises, and other support structures. 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, ‘Tropical Rainbow’ 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, ‘Tropical Rainbow’ 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. Bougainvilleas bloom on new growth, so pruning after the flowering cycle can help promote more blooms.

Uses: Bougainvillea ‘Tropical Rainbow’ is a popular choice for adding a burst of vibrant and varied colours to gardens, landscapes, and outdoor spaces. Its colourful hues make it an excellent focal point or accent plant in any setting.
