    bougainvillea is native to South America, i think? so a desert environment would be ideal for it to grow. i dont know about the other plant but it is spectacular!!:)
  • Cristina
    how do you plant the bougainvillea to grow on the top of the structure shown?

    Google "Pride of Madeira"..... Not a Butterfly Bush.
  • ed_mcshery

    Best Butterfly bushes: "Miss Violet" & "Blue Chip."

    The first only grows to about 5' x 5' max.; no deadheading or pruning needed, dark purple all summer long (and fall), withstands heat well/doesn't need a lot of water, but needs 6 hours of sun/day, no seeds or spreading. It's pretty much self-maintaining.

    The second is a smaller, 2' x 2' version but with a lighter purple color.

    They definitely attract butterflies and have a lilac-like fragrance.

    how did you attach it to the stucco?

  • PRO

    We screwed hooks into wall, then ran a network of wires for Bougainvillea to weave in to.

    It's a basic Saltillo Tile. The tile was not sealed before "grouting" so the tile absorbed some of the "red quarry clay" grout.

    Lori I have no information on growing from seed. Pride of Madeira needs a Mediterranean Climate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Go for Baroque for a Vivacious, Colorful GardenNov 18, 2013

Link the house and garden with strong colors. If anything shouts baroque, the simple yet stunning planting against the complementary coloring of this house does.We can see how the yellow again creates the buffer between the strong colors of the mauve Pride of Madeira (Echium candicans), the cerise bougainvillea and the dark-purple porch woodwork.

Amy Renea added this to Glorious Purple Blooms Bring a Crowning Touch to GardensMay 15, 2012

Pride of Madeira (Echium candicans) is a purple showstopper that blends easily with the hot pinks of bougainvillea in tropical gardens.
