Miami Pink is a vigorous grower with deep hot pink bracts.  It's leaves are mid to dark green and ovate.

Because of its vigorous growth, its best suited for use with trellis, and also in standard-form.  With periodic pruning, this variety can be trained into bush and hanging baskets.

When it's mature, it can grow to 20-30’ tall X 6-9’ wide. However, you can prune to keep it smaller.

After each blooming cycle (approximately every 4-6 weeks), trim or pinch the soft tips of young plants stems to encourage new growth. Pinching means removing the growing tip.  This will create multiple offshoots, thicken the plant’s appearance, and yield a more colorful bougainvillea.

In the Southeastern U.S., Miami Pink flowers most heavily from October through June, but can flower sporadically year-round if dry conditions exist.  Evergreen.
