how do you know this is a hybrid?

looks like old stuff…. non hybrid type from flower pictures to me

your explanation would be most helpful, …


Seems to be Bougainvillea spectabilis


FoP informs me that spines of B. glabra are slightly curved and upto 1 cm while FoC informs me leaves of B. spectabilis are densely pubescent. This plant doesn’t feature both these two characters. I also read a few docs, before submitting, one ex http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/oc/freepubs/pdf/OF-38.pdf


great so i would / should look at these before buying native sp or hybrid …


This is possibly Bougainvillea ×buttiana Holttum & Standl. as in
Calphotos
