the hunt for bougainvillea begins

I like bougainvillea and I managed to find some last weekend in a friend’s garden.

Though they have a very nice Chinese name 九重葛 (“jiu chong ge”), locally we go by their not so romantically sound common name “Paper Flower/纸花” with reference to their thin and papery bracts.

The hunt is not over yet as my next goal is to search for double bract bougainvillea. Soldier on!

White and Pink
I like these very much!
