Bangalore: BMRCL (Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation) has taken up an initiative to plant Bougainvillea saplings at the space available under the elevated Metro line.
As many as 30 varieties of Bougainvillea saplings have been identified to beautify the space, and each route will be identified with a specific variety of ornamental tree.
Tenders have been called to maintain & beautify the space.
Around 700 spots have been identified in the phase-I of Metro.
A senior official of BMRCL said,“Bougainvillea has been chosen as it is a unique plant which bears flowers throughout the year. Also, the plant bears flowers of different colours in different weather conditions. The plant does not get affected by worms easily.”
