Bougainvillea - the most beautiful flower of the Mediterranean
Bougainvillea, or Bogumila as some people call it, is the most beautiful flower of the Mediterranean.
I do not know if anyone can resist to stop and at least for a while admire the luxurious bougainvillea that adorn the houses and hotels on the Greek coast.
It also grows as a weed on the southern Greek islands, along the road.
This beautiful plant can also be grown in Serbia. Nurseries in Greece sell bougainvillea planted in pots and with a flower for about 5 €.
It needs a lot of sunny hours to flourish and grow well. It does not like the wind. During the winter it is necessary to protect it or take it into a chilled room to spend the winter.
Bougainvillea blooms from June to November.

I love that Mediterranean countries adopted the Bougainvillaea. However, the Bougainvillaeas are not from Europe, they are native to South America, especially Brazil. They were brought to Europe in the 19th century.
