Flower of the Day – July 23, 2015 – Bougainvillea | cocoaevenings

Bougainvilleas are probably the most commonly seen flowering plant in my country as they are grown on almost every roadside. They are hardy; able to withstand the tropical climate with harsh, burning sun, and pouring rain the next moment.

The bougainvillea flower is actually only that tiny white one that looks like a nano-daisy. The brightly coloured parts are called bracts, which are modified leaves. The bracts vary in degree of violet.

In this post, I am showing you the hot pink, bright purple, and soft violet varieties.
