Bougainvillea is a genus of plants of the family Nyctaginaceae, native to tropical areas (especially in Brazil).

The plant was discovered in 1768 in Brazil by the French botanist Philibert Commerson and it was later named in honor of Louis Antoine de Bougainville, French explorer who was the head of the expedition.
