Bougainvillea bracts turning white at edges.
Hi. Bougainvillea grows marvellously here and I was looking for one to put in a large container that gets sun all day. I read about their care etc. and I'm confident I haven't overwatered or done anything wrong.
But, since April, just about all the pink bracts have been gradually turning white at the edges, some almost completely, as if bleached or burned, and the only thing I can think of is heat and sun. I moved the pot to a spot where it'll get shade by 1 p.m.
Is this common? It occurs to me that when I bought it (in early April) and the plant was already in an outdoor nursery, it had not been properly "hardened" to full sun, so the bracts are now suffering a bit, but I don't know. I'm new to AZ.
Thanks for any input.
