The American Bougainvillea Society Sale showcases one of South Florida gardeners' favorite plants. Adaptable, durable and a show stopper when in bloom, bougainvilleas thrive on little to no care and do well without irrigation water and infrequent fertilizer. They are an excellent choice for South Florida garden hobbyists and landscape designers as they do well in our alkaline soils and provide great color for much of the year. Join Fairchild Garden and the American Bougainvillea Society for this eye-dazzling sale.
