REMARKS

The first true dwarf Bougainvillea. Excellent for covering the ground. Hardly needs to be trimmed. Just once a while a longer branch needs to be taken out. At this time (april 2001) we are experimenting with two new dwarfs: white and purple, with very small leaves and flowers. Bougainvillea is a very good plant for our climate; it loves the heat and is very drought tolerant.
