Colour upFor dazzling colour over long periods, you can’t beat bougainvillea. This South American native has all the colourful flamboyance you associate with that continent. It’s another very robust vine, but if you have the space and a strong support to grow bougainvillea, you’ll be rewarded with masses of colour for long periods – as well as regular visits from butterflies and other pollinators. Bougainvillea needs plenty of sun, shelter from cold wind, and well-drained soil. It’s ideal for coastal gardens as it can tolerate salt-laden winds. Tip: Some people even grow bougainvillea along walls for security purposes, as its spiny branches are quite the burglar deterrent. Vines can be cut back ruthlessly when necessary.Privacy plants for the modern home
