Different Kind of Fall Color

In warm climates "fall color" take on a different meaning, especially when it comes to bougainvillea. This tropical vine is in full color in our area this time of year and the bright brackets (the actual flowers are tiny white blooms in the center of the three colorful brackets) are vivid against the clear blue skies that make this such a lovely time of year, even in warmer climates.

You can grow so many plants that I can't! It gets too cold here for so many beautiful plants I'd love to have. >:-p

Mine are blooming too. I have to move them inside before the frost though. I grow them in large pots and they bloom off and on through the winter so they make my sunny dining room seem so nice.
