Bougainvillea 'Golden Tango' is a tough and vigorous climber with yellow orange colourful bracts and small white flowers within the bracts. It can be grown over fences, trellises and pergolas, but the structure should be sturdy as the plant can grow large. It will be deciduous in colder areas.
Bougainvillea are spectacular plants for creating colourful effects. Good in temperate to tropical climates. They can grow large. They are generally trouble free, but the thorns can be painful at pruning time- it is advisable to wear gloves when handling the plant. Fertilise if needed with a good general purpose fertiliser.
