Bougainvillea Smartipants is also known as Pink Pixie and Torch Glow is a moderate grower with a medium upright habit. An unusual-looking multi-branch system perfect for creating Bougainvillea bonsai.  Tiny pink-red bracts start at 15-20 centimetres before the end of the cane, giving it a distinct torch-like appearance.  Both bracts and leaves are small, compact, and tightly packed.  Leaves are light to mid-green, with very short internodes.

Bougainvillea are long flowering and can be adapted for a wide variety of landscaping uses. Some of these uses include topiary, hedging, hanging baskets, arbours and arches. Today’s Bougainvillea have a great range in growth habit and height. There are dwarf varieties that grow to only a metre, compact medium growers and some such as White Cascade that offer a beautiful cascading habit.

Bougainvillea prefer a well drained soil and sunny position. The range of colours offers limitless combinations and a palette to choose from that would satisfy any landscape design.

Please note: At this small size, Bougainvillea have delicate roots and should be handled with care. DO NOT tease or disturb roots but rather water the tube well, gently invert and tap tube on the side of a hard surface so it slides out. Our recommendation is to plant our beautifully-grown Bougainvillea into a larger pots rather than directly into the ground.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.
