Bougainvillea ‘California Gold’ is named for the stunning golden bracts that grow around the true flowers.  In frost free areas, plant in the ground and train it up fences for a grand display the better part of the year.  Bougainvillea needs moderate water the first year, while it gets itself established, but after that occasional water will do just fine.  Be sure to plant in full sun for the best show of color.  In areas with cold winters, use ‘California Gold’ as a splash of exotic annual color in hanging baskets or other containers.
