This is a royal purple bougainvillea among the several other colours that adorn our garden. Bougainvillea normally show up immediately after the monsoon season but this year it has been different.
Not only did nature play her game in delaying the flowering season the deep pruning that our gardener did further aggravated it. The image that is seen here is last year’s bloom. I see very few bougainvillea blooming as of now but they will in a few days’ time.
Bougainvillea though thorny can add colour to any garden with least maintenance.
Do you have bougainvillea where you live?
