You could source a style like this from any pot manufacturer. Best option would be to search on the internet in your area. It is 650mm diameter and placed on matching legs.

It is standard Bougainvillia - just grown and maintained to a pot.

Also comes in a bright burnt orange, white and a creamy yellow. Be careful where planting most varieties have thorns that can grow over 2 inches thick and can wreak hell skin if you are accidentally stuck. Watch for kids too.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Idea of the Week: A Bit of Bougainvillea
I'm used to seeing bougainvillea climbing tall on a trellis, but the bright pink flowering plant can be just as happy in a container, as this photo from Secret Gardens of Sydney attests. Just make sure to give it lots of direct sunlight, keep it trimmed, and even those of us with the tiniest of gardens can have our own blooming bougainvillea. Next: Browse the work of Sydney-area designers on Houzz
Secret Gardens of Sydney is a creative landscape design firm, and if you are looking for outdoor inspiration, their portfolio is a great place to start. Note how they have repeated the color from the flowers in the foreground in the striped cushions of the outdoor armchair above. I know I will be keeping this tip in mind while updating my porch this spring!
Pink whispers femininity when it is pastel and shouts it when it is bright. A simple pot of vibrant, hot pink blooms makes an entrance that can't be missed.
This beautiful, simple stoneware container raised high above a patio is planted with lovely bougainvillea. Its almost psychedelic color exemplifies perfectly how the simplest of container plantings can be the most effective, no matter the garden style.
Bill Marken added this to California Gardener's March Checklist
Hawaii in a pot. On the Big Island, you see bougainvillea, orginally from South America, everywhere — climbing through trees, as a hedge or ground cover, as a scraggly survivor fluttering purple flashes in a lava field. In California bougainvillea is easy to grow, usually as a vine, but it's sensitive to hard frosts. A great spot is in a container, where you can provide plenty of sun and winter shelter (under an eave may be enough). Plant bougainvillea in a pot now and you can have a showy display by midsummer. It's best to choose one of the compact varieties such, as 'Singapore Pink', 'Temple Fire' or 'Purple Queen'. When planting, take special care not to break up the root ball — plants are sensitive about this.Botanical name: Bougainvillea, many varietiesUSDA zones: 9 to 11 Water requirement: ModerateLight requirement: Full sunMature size: Vining types can reach 30 feet; compact types, 2 to 6 feet tallGrowing tips: Vines need support to climb; tie branches to a trellis or wall.
