Anyone familiar with Bougainvilleas? Wondering what fertilizer is best for this plant. I'm interested in making it flower. Thanks in advance.

Lots of sunshine, warmth and regular watering. I used a fertilizer for annuals and have had glorious bushes. In fall I trim it way back to about 2 - 3ft and bring indoors where it grows to about 5 or 6ft. I then take outdoors after the danger of frost is over repeating the cycle. Note: I only trim it once per year.
