Bougainvillea Flowers - Pink

          Bougainvillea is an ornamental flowering plant, which does not need much introduction or description because of its huge popularity. Anyway, I like to give some important facts about this beautiful plant, as given below.....
       
          Bougainvillea is a native of South America. There are more than 15 species of them. Names of a few are Bougainvillea peruviana , Bougainvillea spectabilis, Bougainvillea spinosa..... and so on..... It mainly grows in places with warm climates. More details are given in Wikipedia.

          Given below are some of the photos I took from and around my place. Given here are the pink varieties.
See its Beauty.....

  6. Valerie/ Valentina also published a small booklet on natural remedies[3] which you can buy for 20 pesos on the Farmer’s market. It too talks about using bougainvillea flowers as a remedy against cough. Her remedy is a little more complicated. She recommends a tea made from bougainvillea flowers of various colors, cinnamon, garlic and a prune.

    Seeing the same remedy quoted in several publications increases the level of confidence that this remedy really works. That applies to the use of bougainvillea flowers to treat cough. It was also quoted in a Master’s thesis of someone who studied the herbal remedies used in a small town in the Sierra’s some 40 km from Oaxaca City
