In 1982 I discovered a plant mail-order house called Harbourcrest Gardens which featured a large catalogue of flowering plants. In particular, they had many bougainvillea listings. I ordered a dozen or so rooted cuttings. These all grew well both indoors and outdoors (in the summer). BUT, I could never bring them into flower. Many years later I picked up a fully grown standard (about 1m high) at an end-of-the-season sale at a local nursery. This plant (shown in the photo below) has bloomed faithfully every year for the last decade!
