I found this purple bougenvilla at Target several years ago and planted it in my front yard on one of the posts on our porch. I didn't want the traditional hot pink one. I wanted a purple one, which is less common. It is beautiful here in the desert in the spring. Right now, it is resting after a long, hot summer, but next spring it will be back with its blossoms.
