Norm Schilling shares his expertise on growing and caring for bougainvillea in Southern Nevada.

He highlights the plant's heat and drought tolerance but also notes its thorniness and tendency to freeze back in winter.

Schilling provides tips on trellising and pruning bougainvillea, and also mentioned another favorite plant, santolina, for its tightly knit foliage and springtime flowers.
