Bougainvillea next to wall?

wildzxApril 18, 2013

hello all,
quick question. I hear that the roots of Bougainvillea are rough, tough and very hard; is this true? I planted 2 Bougainvillea next to my house wall, and plan is to have the vines climb up the chimney and wall.
Should I be concerned about the roots of the 2 Bougainvillea i planted effecting my house foundation, wall or something like that? will it be ok or should i move them in planters? thanks

Hi & welcome to Gardenweb! Bougainvillea will not climb up a wall on its' own. Do you have a plan for attaching it? Knowing where you are would help folks best advise. Sorry, not familiar with the strength of the roots...
