Bougainvillea ‘San Diego Red’

Nyctaginaceae
Evergreen, Vines

This is one of the best on all counts, with large, deep green leaves that hold on well in cold winters; deep red bracts that appear over a long season; and hardiness equal to old-fashioned purple bougainvilleas. Vigorous and high climbing, it can be trained to tree form by staking and pruning.
