Known for its striking bracts in shades of raspberry pink and cream, 'Raspberry Ice' Bougainvillea adds a burst of color and tropical elegance to gardens, fences, and outdoor spaces.

One of the most outstanding features of 'Raspberry Ice' Bougainvillea is its eye-catching bracts, which are modified leaves that surround the inconspicuous true flowers. 'Raspberry Ice' is known for its bold raspberry pink and creamy white 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 'Raspberry Ice,' 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 Arizona's hot and arid climate, 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 'Raspberry Ice' 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, 'Raspberry Ice' Bougainvillea is a stunning and drought-tolerant choice for Arizona landscapes, especially in regions with a hot and arid climate. Its vibrant raspberry pink and cream bracts, vigorous climbing habit, and persistent blooming make it a valuable addition to gardens and outdoor spaces, adding both visual beauty and a touch of tropical allure to the desert environment.
