When I see the bright pink of a bougainvillea I feel like I am looking at a flower. It turns out that the flowers are tiny, hiding amid the color of the "flower-like spring leaves".


From the Wikipedia Bougainvillea page:

"The actual flower of the plant is small and generally white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colours associated with the plant, including pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white, or yellow."
