Unfortunately, this beauty is outside my wall on the front of my house where I really haven’t noticed it. This is my very favorite color of bougainvillea (bugambilias in Mexico) and it only stays orange like this when it is in bright sunlight for part of the day. When I planted it in Boulder Creek, CA, it always turned pink for lack of sunlight in the redwoods. I need to plant one in my back yard as well so I can see it every day.
