Bougainvillea is a hardy perennial vine.  To maintain healthy growth and encourage maximum blossom, it is usually pruned very early spring (beginning of March).  Depending on the customary climate for the region, the colourful bracts will start to appear later in the spring, normally April/May and continue to blossom until the end of any one year.  For the bracts to flourish the vine needs to be planted in full sunshine, it doesn't require much watering but thrives on impoverished soil.  Regard..


[Bootiful innit?  The purpley bits are the bracts and the little white things in the middle are the flowers]

As the bracts die off, they become brownish and papery, this is the most likely stage they will drop or be blown from the vine to make way for the blossoming of new bracts.  This process is ongoing throughout the season.  Between spring and late December there is no mass moulting that would  result in a bare vine  - unless of course the gardener goes at it with a machete.  There can easily be bald areas of a vine, especially if sheltered from the sun.

Rather like having fairies at the bottom of the garden, once you get used to seeing them on a regular basis you tend to take them for granted, therefore are less likely to notice.  The chances of staff being able to give an accurate account of the shrubbery at any time of year I think extremely remote.  As for the staff using the complex facilities for relaxation out of hours, first I've ever heard of that being permitted.

What's next on the agenda - the missing arm that isn't or the missing shadow that isn't?

It looks like the first (arrival) day, but not sure if it's the same tree, stone wall and white wall as the "last photo".

What is that in the background?

Can you prove it is a bougainvillea?


It's a stem of something anyway, have you looked where bougainvillea actually flower?

I just found it interesting how bare the wall appeared in that picture compared to the last photo. It seems the picture in the PJ files is wider:

and though it's terrible quality there does seem to be a lot of white showing on the left hand side (as we view it).

Maybe it's just a different section of the wall, just another piece of the puzzle.

I just have this niggle at back of my mind, and can't be certain of in which order it works.  I used to be online with some Portuguese ladies that knew exactly how it worked. It seems the weather pattern needs to be a certain way, like for ex. needs to be cool and wet, but suddenly it change a lot in temperatures and that's when they are forced into flower. Forgive me if it's other way round.  Just maybe someone who is native to the area could let us know.  I think it could be quite important and why it's hard to understand bare wall in some areas and flowers elsewhere?  joyce1938

Bougainvillea only flower well on new growth so pruning is essential at some point. Here on the Algarve hard pruning can be undertaken at the end of January or during February – any shaping or hard pruning needed should be done before growth starts in early spring.  They will not tolerate wet roots in winter and although preferring rich loamy, well-drained soils  they are very tolerant and adapt to many soil types. Light feeding and some water through the summer will be of benefit.  The bougainvilleas are salt tolerant  but do need full sun for best displays. Watering during the first couple of summer seasons aids establishment but they will tolerate short periods of drought. Propagation of favourite colour forms is best done by cuttings taken in summer.

Thanks for your reply, Joss, I wonder if newish bushes do take longer to bloom as much as bigger, older bushes. Or would it be not so far forward if newish plants, so would be slower?  joyce1938
