In this instance, the property is maintained by an experienced gardening crew. If you were to train a Bougainvillea yourself, to be safe, you might want to invest in a pair of heavy leather gardening gloves and install it in a location away from walkways.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bougainvillea is another great choice to pair with flowering fruit trees.
Choose salt-tolerant plants. Salt spray presents the biggest challenge to those looking to create a beachside garden, as many plants become burned or outright killed by salty breezes. Worse yet, hurricanes and tropical storms sometimes inundate gardens with a dangerous storm surge of pure saltwater. Native plants are the best candidates for the space closest to the water's edge, but beyond that there are colorful and architectural exotic plants that will also thrive. The bougainvillea (Bougainvillea spectabilis, zones 9 to 11) shown here is one of the better vines for beachfront plantings, due to its flamboyant, vivid colors and great resistance to salt, drought and winds.

1. Informal espaliers. Many plant species are suited for informal or free-form patterns, which work well with a number of garden styles, including modern, Asian, and cottage. Positioning an informal espalier at eye level, as with this bougainvillea, gives it prominence.

To espalier is to train trees, shrubs and vines on a frame (also called an espalier) so they grow into a flat plane, an ancient horticultural practice. A French word, “espalier” is derived from the Italian “spalliera,” which means “something to rest the shoulder [spalla] against.” The Romans originated the technique, and medieval Europeans refined it into an art as they trained fruit trees to grow against cloister walls. Today’s gardeners are rediscovering the technique’s usefulness and beauty.

ESPALIERS With garden spaces becoming smaller around our urban and suburban homes, the espalier is enjoying a revival. To espalier is to train trees, shrubs and vines on a frame (also called an espalier) so they grow into a flat plane, an ancient horticultural practice. A French word, “espalier” is derived from the Italian “spalliera,” which means “something to rest the shoulder [spalla] against.” The Romans originated the technique, and medieval Europeans refined it into an art as they trained fruit trees to grow against cloister walls. Today’s gardeners are rediscovering the technique’s usefulness and beauty. Whether trained into traditional patterns or allowed to meander more informally, espaliers are living sculptures. (The word “espalier” is also used to describe the trained plants.) Choosing the form your espalier will take with your garden in mind will help reinforce your garden’s style and feeling. Here are six design ideas to consider.
