On 11/8 Seth Sklarey wanted to know where to find yellow bougainvilla -

I saw many nurseries in Key West in August '95 that had yellow

ones. I bought one south of Marathon for my mother -

Blooms for the bougainvilla can be induced by pouring one cup of salt

on the area around the base of the plant, watering it in. This 'bloom

trick' can only be used about twice a year or the plant will die.
