#912 Glendora Bougainvillea
Planted in 1901 by the R.W. Hamlins, early citrus growers, the Glendora Bougainvillea is the largest growth of this exotic plant in the United States. The parent stock was brought to California by a whaling ship about 1870, and the vines survive as one of the best examples remaining of the early 20th century promotional image of California as paradise.
