Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
They really appear to be reaching out towards the sun, great shots!
Such a stunning flower. I agree, they look very attractive.MersadMersad Donko Photography
I love all kinds of bougainvillea. This one is new to me. I haven't seen them before. Thank you Feyza
One of my favorites.
Interesting! It's amazing how humans have hybridized and manipulated plants to make them more attractive -- all the varieties we've achieved. I seem to remember reading somewhere, though, that if humans died out, much of our vegetation would return to its native state within a relatively short time. Hybrids just aren't very good at propagation.
I love the thought that flowers would return to its natural state if we human disappeared (Steve's comment). Top photo is an unusual angle.
This torch like one is new to me and beautiful!
That's a 'mouthful'.
It's a beautiful plant!
Such a showy plant and if I remember right, very easy to grow. They don't do well here because of the cold. I think they are poisonous.
What glorious colour!
Gorgeous colors! You just reminded me that I have to post pne of these...
It's definitely a torch bougainvillea! I started noticing this variety a few years ago. I had a beautiful San Diego Red bougainvillea at my house in Phoenix. It's one flower I've missed since I've been gone.
A flower I love and associate with the Mediterranean. Your photos are magnificent!
We used to love those when we lived there.
I have not seen this kind of bougainvillea. (Phew! . . . I was so worried typing bougainvillea, wondering what autocorrect was going to turn it into if I messed up.)
I miss those too. They don't survive our winters.
I've never seen this variety before. I love bougainvillea though, in any form!
Gorgeous blooms !
