Spotting Purple Bougainvillea

There's a particular purple bougainvillea which you see only around Coonoor.
The colour is intense, and in summer - April and May it blooms and it's one mass of purple blooms with no leaves visible.
Unlikemost other bougainvillea this particular one grows large and thick becoming a tree.
This young plant promises to grow into a major show stopper.

This is what I meant when I said it grows into a tree.
This particular bouganivillea plant at a firend's place must be a couple of decades old.
I've got myself some cuttings.
In the meantime I'll continue to spot Purple bougainvillea around town.
