‘Mary Palmer’s Enchantment’ is a large vine type Bougainvillea, with large fluffy clusters of pure white bracts.  Because ‘Mary Palmer’s Enchantment’ handles heat and direct sun so well, it makes a beautiful choice for training up arbors to create shade below.  In fact, Bougainvillea needs the direct sunlight to produce the best bloom show.  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.  Beware the long sharp thorns when pruning; puncture proof gloves are best.  Plant ‘Mary Palmer’s Enchantment’ where a delicate look is desired, but a hardy character is needed.
