Bougainvillea ‘Vera Purple’ p.p. (Bougainvillea hybrid)
Who can resist the plumes of bright reddish purple flowers? Not only does 'Vera Purple' make a perfect sized standard, its upright growth is hardly ever without bloom. Unlike many bougainvilleas, this one is not a vine and has a shrubby, bushy growth habit. The brightly colored flowers are less sensitive to the shortening day length, so it flowers freely throughout the year. In fact, the blooms hold their color even with age. In the south, 'Vera Purple' can be used as a landscape plant.
Hardiness Zone 9, 10
Bloom Season Everbloomer
Sun Requirement Full Sun
Grows to 2-3'

  1. Very nice variety of bougainvillea Review by Ron
    How do you rate this product?

    The "Vera Purple" variety is a more manageable sized bougainvillea for keeping in a confined spot in garden or even inside. I like the fact that it is an upright and can be placed almost anywhere to fit in with your living space. The color of blooms on mine is more muted than the photos here would show, but for some that may be a plus anyhow. It has enough purple to tone down the brightness of red color.

    It arrived well wrapped and looking great, it immediately put on a month long show of blooms and then took a 10 day break before starting to show flower buds again. So its not ever-blooming but just about so. (Posted on 12/23/2015)

  2. Beautiful bougainvillea Review by Frida Quindara
    How do you rate this product?

    I bought this plant 1 year ago on a 2.5 inch pot. Oh it turned out so pretty. The blooms are plenty and so beautiful. I will look into buying another color. Thank you. I wish there is a way I could post a picture. (Posted on 7/4/2014)
