I read your article with great interest and of course was delighted by the pictures. I'd like to point out that I've learned through personal experience on an Aegean island that, sadly, bougainvillea does not like wind. Those that do well here are the ones on the protected side of the house whereas trying to get the others to climb up the pergola on the windward side has been an exercise in futility. They will grow and bloom, but not seem to want to climb quickly if at all.
