I love this one in particular:




What height is it? Any idea of age?

And, what sort of temperature do you need to get Bougies to flower like that/how long will it flower for?

Oh, so many questions!!!

Thanks for sharing your pics from a very jealous northern temperate (i.e. bloody cold in winter) zonee*.

I'm sure he has a much longer blooming season that I do, but my bougie is in bloom most of the year -- including winter when it is being tortured inside my sun room. If you stress them, they will bloom. In Hawaii, they may need less stress.

Howzit Jim,

Your right on the money!! ThumbsUp In Hawaii they start blooming in January and pretty much bloom all year round. The airport bougies I got four weeks ago are starting to have new shoots. Dance Dance

thanks for the responses, everyone. appreciate the feedback.

maui hawaiian - anytime you come our way, you're welcome.

Fiona - the tree's dimensions. H 21.5", W 23", Trunk base 10.5 " approx age. 50 yrs. ave. temp year around where I live. day mid-low 80's (f). night mid-low 70's. from first budding to full flower, the process can span one month.

Jim - where I live, bougainvillea flower year around without the need for artificial stressing, however, every tree does not develop a full display of blossoms every time. bougainvillea flowers only at the ends of new growth. besides a good fertilization program, the best way to insure flowering is to cut the tree back hard after it blossoms.

storm - yes, I will post some individual pictures here are a few. grape, bougainvillea

Really cool bonsai my friend...

Where is Poipu? I spent 11 days on the North Coast...33 years ago. Missed Poipu. Didn't really see much beyond the airport and the North Coast...

By the way...I have two lovely grandaughters whose other grandfather is a Hamasaki...from Kauii. I met the girls grandmother about 2 weeks before leaving for Kauii...

Pat…mounted on my trusty stead, riding off wildly in all directions…

in pic #1, is that a bougie in the blue pot?

in pic #2, is that a Vitex rotundifolia?
