Bougainvillea ‘Orange King’ is a quick growing vine that benefits from support as it climbs structures.  The showy bracts vary from primarily orange to dusty pink, to bronze.  In areas that get frost in the winter, use this variety as annual color in planters and hanging baskets.  Bougainvillea benefits from regular water while getting established, but after the first year it only needs occasional watering.  Be sure to plant in full sun for the best show of color.  Beware the long sharp thorns when pruning; puncture proof gloves are best.  Plant Bougainvillea ‘Orange King’ in frost free areas where clouds of summer sunset colored blooms will are desired.
