          I know that bougainvillea did well in northern California, and if you live in BC, I found this quote on the internet, “While not hardy in B.C., I well remember seeing a beautiful pot of bougainvillea in full bloom on a patio in Richmond many years ago. It was in a 60-centimetre pot and supported on a two-metre trellis. The owner told me she wheeled it into her unheated garage for the months of December through early February, where it lost its foliage and went into a semi-dormant state. It was watered once a month during this time. Whether grown in a pot in Canada or out in the garden like here in Mexico, they require drastic pruning at this time of the year (January) to encourage new growth and plenty of bloom. They also prefer well-drained soil and tolerate drought and full sun.”
