Bougainvillea 'Alexandra' is a beautiful and colorful flowering vine that can thrive in various climates, including areas with a warm and arid climate like parts of Arizona. Known for its striking bracts in shades of bright pink and purple, 'Alexandra' Bougainvillea adds a burst of tropical beauty and elegance to gardens, fences, and outdoor spaces.

One of the most outstanding features of 'Alexandra' Bougainvillea is its colorful bracts, which are modified leaves that surround the inconspicuous true flowers. 'Alexandra' is known for its bold and vibrant pink and purple bracts that create a visually captivating and dramatic display of color. The bracts are typically abundant and persistent, ensuring that the plant remains colorful throughout the growing season.

Bougainvillea vines, including 'Alexandra,' are typically vigorous climbers that can reach heights of 10 to 20 feet or more, making them excellent choices for covering walls, fences, or arbors. They are well-suited to warm and sunny climates, thriving in full sun and requiring well-drained soil. These plants are drought-tolerant once established, making them valuable choices for water-wise landscaping and xeriscaping.

Maintenance of 'Alexandra' Bougainvillea includes regular pruning to control its growth and shape. Pruning can also help promote blooming and prevent the vine from becoming too dense. It's important to note that Bougainvillea can have thorns, so care should be taken when handling them.

In summary, 'Alexandra' Bougainvillea is a vibrant and tropical choice for gardens and outdoor spaces in Arizona, adding both visual beauty and a touch of exotic allure to the landscape. Its stunning pink and purple bracts, vigorous climbing habit, and persistent blooming make it a valuable addition to gardens, especially in regions with a warm and arid climate.
