Bougainvilleas Live a Risky Life In Late Fall Desert Weather   2 comments

We recently had some much-needed rain here in the desert. A cold-weather low from the north mixed with warmer Pacific moisture brought in rain at the lower elevations and snow on the mountains. Now the moisture has gone, but the low temps remain with highs in the upper fifties and lows nearing overnight frost temps, which will kill the foliage of the beautiful bougainvilleas — so far, so good.

The plants in our yard will not make it through the winter, so in the spring we will again be cutting back the plants preparing them for new growth.

Southern Arizona has a hard-freeze coming from the cold north that  will push our temperatures into the low to mid-twenties the next three morning — lots of plant to cover and/or move inside.
