The immense popularity of this flower has been earned thanks to an exceptionally long flowering time, as it blossoms for the whole summer in the courtyards of Los Angeles, adorning the gates, walls, and roofs of houses. Bougainvillea is a shrub, creeping, climbing, or clinging with lignified stems. The colouring of flowers is usually bright crimson, but also purple, white, yellow, and pink.
