This Bougainvillea was donated by Bonsai Society member Judy Fister, and Bob Hill from the Dayton Bonsai Society in 2018.
It is a mother/daughter composition and informal upright style. The pot is oval, glazed, beige in color and is 4 inches deep.
The first European to describe these plants was Philibert Commerçon, a botanist accompanying French Navy admiral Louis Antoine de Bougainville during his voyage of circumnavigation of the Earth. It was first published by Antoine Laurent de Jussieu in 1789.
