This prop has come to life

Yet another prop has popped up - a royal purple bougainvillea. We use bougainvillea props to support other plants and they get the nourishment and this is how they flourish. Bougainvillea anyway need very little maintenance but they do add colour to the garden.

Our neighbor in back of us has this growing on his side of the fence . . . he had his gardener trim it back A LOT. But we just know it's going to get overgrown soon enough and we will get to enjoy the purples eventually .
It truly is a very hardy plant. The only thing I do not like about the plant is that it has thorns in its stems that you have to be careful when touching them else you get scratched by them. Most use this plant as wall to cover their lots. You just have to trim them every now and then so the branches would not grow anywhere.
@allknowing It does not need a lot of maintenance and the only thing you have to do with it is to trim them from time too time since it can grow branches and become unsightly. But when properly trimmed and flowers are blooming they can be nice to look at since they bloom all year round.
