Elizabeth Angus Bougainvillea
Weighing the above varietal of Bougainvillea vs. Barbara Karst and a few others. I'm looking to grow the vine up a lattice trellis to the top of an arbor - roughly 10 ft to top and need about 3 ft wide (will prune to shape of course). does anyone have experience with this particular varietal as far as speed and overall height of growth. One side of the arbor is full sun all dun, the other is partial shade/sun. Also, do the blooms not fall off the vine when they fade out like other varietals and you need to pull them off?
How much fertilizer should I use when I first plant? once a month after that?
