Arizona White Bougainvillea Brilliance
This white bougainvillea glistens in the sun at my Oasis in Gilbert Arizona.
Bougainvillea grow vines with thorns. The actual flower of the plant is small and generally white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts in bright colors, including pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white, peach, salmon or yellow. Bougainvillea are sometimes referred to as a "paper flower" because the bracts are thin and papery.
