Gotta watch those thorns, though... best to let somebody else trim those vines. Beautiful, but they bite...

Nothing as bad as pruning roses. Bloke across from me had 112 varieties of roses. It took him almost a day each year to prune them, so he just pulled them out and grew a lawn because the thorns got him.

My husband's mom lives in SanFran area. She has three different bouganvilla crawling over a tool/potting shed in her back yard. I visited and sat outside three times before I saw her open a door, and realized there was a shed there.

When I lived in Puerto Rico, the bouganvilla were everywhere...climbing houses, fences. Paradise. What was truly amazing to me at that time (I was 19) was that folks had poinsettias as privacy hedges. Had no idea it would ever get bigger than those little guys they sell at Christmas.
