    Lovely flowers! Do you take the bougainvillea inside for winter?

    Thanks all :D

    The Bougainvillea is in a pot and yes, it will either come inside or go to a local greenhouse for overwintering. They charge $30 to care for your plant all winter, which is about what you’d pay for a small-sized new plant each year. It would never survive our snowy winter, but does very well during the summer months.

    Nice to find a greenhouse that will do that. I seem to kill most of the things I bring inside for the winter, so it would totally be worth it to pay someone else to look after it.
