Pixie Bougainvillea (Boug056)
The Bougainvillea is a highly sought-after evergreen tropical vine that produces a dynamic spectrum of blooms ranging from pinks, oranges, whites and purples.
The Bougainvillea is native to South America and named after French Navy admiral and explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville, who both circumnavigated the globe on scientific expedition and fought against Britain during the American Revolution.
The colorful, papery "blooms" of the Bougainvillea are not actually flowers, but rather “bracts”. The true flower is white, trumpet shaped and almost unnoticeable within the bracts. Bougainvillea flower most heavily in winter and early spring.
Being a sub-tropical tree, the Bougainvillea likes high temperatures, humidity and lots of sunlight. It can be kept indoors as long as it gets plenty of bright sun and outdoors as long as it’s protected from freezing temperatures. Bougainvillea are also very tolerant to dryer conditions, so over-watering is probably more of a concern than under-watering.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I Kill It?
Maybe, but probably not. Kids and pets are much harder to keep alive, so if you’ve ever had one of them you’ll be fine. Most Bonsai we sell need little more than sun & water.
Are there specific Care Guides available for each species?
Yes there are, and you can find them HERE
When will my Bonsai ship?
We ship daily. However, trees to the west coast ship on Mondays or Tuesday to avoid being held in-transit over the weekend. Shipments of Trees are released on Mondays and Tuesdays only to avoid being held in-transit over weekends.
Can I track my Bonsai?
Yes, once your Bonsai ships you’ll get an email with a FedEx tracking number that you’ll be able to use on their website to see exactly when your tree will arrive.
Do I need anything else to start an adventure in Bonsai?
Your Bonsai will arrive potted in a ceramic Bonsai pot that will compliment your tree and right off the bat that’s all you’ll need. If you’re looking for the basics beyond that, a Starter Kit and Humidity Tray are an excellent place to start.
