|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The bugambilia is a nictagenácea plant of the family of jalapaceas, and there are 13 species. It is a climbing bindweed shrub with thorns and leafy foliage that protects itself with flowers of crimson, orange, yellow, purple, red, white and pink colors amongst others. Even though its name refers to a French region (Bouganville), this plant is native to America and it reproduces very favorably in tropical and subtropical regions. Some say that its name refers to the French navigator Louis A. de Bougainville.
The most surprising characteristic feature of this plant is that it covers itself with a small, very showy flower that in fact is a falacean leaf, protecting the real flower of white or yellowish color which is actually found inside. It is also known as the flower of Saint Rita.
