Bougainvillea Temple Fire

Description

Bougainvillea Temple Fire is a true dwarf Bougainvillea. It is less commonly known as ‘Helen Johnson’. The bracts first appear coppery-red in colour and mature to magenta-red. The leaves are small, broad with slightly pointed tips and wavy margins. The new growth is red-tipped. A self-branching bushy type, it is the perfect Bougainvillea for hedging. They will survive on low water levels and are relatively disease-free. 

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. 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.
