The Actual Flower of Bougainvillea

The actual flower of the plant is small and generally white or light yellow, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colors associated with the plant, including pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white, or yellow. Bougainvillea glabra is sometimes referred to as "paper flower" because the bracts are thin and papery (source:Wikipedia).
