Bougainvillea, Flower of the Day, May 2, 2017

I saw this extravagently hued bougainvillea outside a cafe/gallery where we saw the work of a talented young Guadalajaran artist. Rich colors inside and out.

The sign on this gallery/restaurant in San Antonio Tlaquepan said “Mui Rico.” It suited both the flowers outside as well as the cuisine and rich colors of the art display inside.

For Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge.

    A beautiful bougainvillea! There are so many colors of this flower, and this seems to be one of the richest! Is the color species specific, or does it have to do with the quality of the soil like hydrangeas?

      No, you buy them as a certain color. There is one variety that shifts between orange and a pinkish color according to how much sun they receive, however.
