Bougainvillea......A few things that attracts me about this plant is that it's extremely hardy, virtually pest-free, and it's got gorgeous, dazzling color. These plants do well in Southern California and require full sun, and reportedly do best under stress (ie, slightly on the dry side).

These are great container ideas - to get a lush tropical look in a short time as summer bedding, here Bougainvillea cuttings are rooted into small pots or grow bags & connected into a larger vertical conatiner garden
