Primavera (Brazilian Springflower)

Bougainvillea glabra


Bougainvillea is a genus of flowering plants native to South America from Brazil west to Peru and south to southern Argentina (Chubut Province). Different authors accept between four and 18 species in the genus. The plant was classified by Europeans in Brazil in 1768, by Philibert Commerçon, a French botanist accompanying French Navy admiral and explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville during his voyage of circumnavigation.


Bougainvillea's habitat could not be greener. It has lush vegetation with thick forests. It is a tropical rainforest.


Such a beautiful flower, isn't it?
