Bougainvillea – Enduring Beauty

2012 Floria Putrajaya

Bougainvillea or bougainvillea spp, one of the hardiest and enduring flowering plants Man has seen and grown, had its origins in South America. There are now about 120 Bougainvillea cultivars and hybrids in Malaysia alone with three main species found in this country ie B.glabra, B.spectabilis and B.peruviana. It is interesting to note that B.glabra or strangely known as Mrs. Butt arrived in Malaysia in 1923, followed by a B. Mrs McClean in 1933.

Due to its nature being hardy and enduring, a festival theme of “Enduring Beauty” swept the heart and soul of the organisers off their feet (pun intended) to make Bougainvillea as the theme flower at the 2012 Floria Putrajaya. The event was held for nine days from June 30, 2012 at Putrajaya’s Waterfront in Precinct 2.

The festival saw a large exhibit of more than 100 varieties of Bougainvillea flowers in various forms in the likes of topiary, bonsai and cultivars in different colours, dwarfs and climbers adorning gardens, meadows and general areas. There were more than 10 international participants who went on to display their landscape and floral designs but the local exhibitors took centre stage with their collection of bougainvillea. In fact, the festival created its first imprint in the Malaysian Book of Records when it recorded “The Most Collection of Bougainvillea”.
