Family: Nyctaginaceae (nyk-taj-i-NAY-see-ee)
Genus: Bougainvillea (boo-gan-VIL-lee-uh)

The genus was named after the French navigator, Louis de Bougainville, 1729-1811.

Bougainvillea grows vigorously in tropical areas, but they also do well in subtropics and as houseplants in temperate zones. Some varieties of Bougainvillea should be located where they have room to expand, receive full sunlight the majority of the time, and in a drier landscape.
Since the standard varieties of Bougainvillea are aggressive plants, it is good to stake or tie them to a trellis, which makes them perfect for arbors and draped along fences where it creates a security barrier by virtue of its thorns and dense twiggy growth.
  The heart shaped leaves are rich green and 3-5 in (7.6-12.7 cm) long.  Bougainvillea flowers are small yellow white waxy tubes that are not very impressive. However, three 1-2 in (2.5-5.1 cm) long papery bracts surround them and it is these that are responsible for the colorful displays for which this genus is famous.
