Common Name: Louis Wathen
Availabilty: In Stock
The gorgeous Louis Wathen Bougainvilla is an evergreen in frost free locations, with stunning clusters of striking hot pink to magenta, papery bracts surrounding tiny, creamy white flowers.This traditionally sized variety offers wave-edged pretty foliage on long, reaching branches with thorns. Don't be deterred by the thorns on her branches though, allow others to be! Bougainvilleas are popular for security purposes, training over fences, or even deterring pets or children from climbing fences. This little sun lover flowers year round in more temperate climates, and in cooler regions unleashes all her splendour in the warmer months.
This climber or rambler is massively versatile, offering many options; allow her to be a dense ground cover when left to ramble over embankments and explode in colour in mass plantings, or a huge spectacle when trained to grow up fences or trellis. Consider planting in containers for feature planting, or train this vigorous grower to establish over arches or gazebos. Utilise in topiary arrangements, hanging baskets or hedging... we told you she was versatile! End. Less. Options. When left unpruned, she can grow 3 metres wide and tall, however we recommend pruning after flowering to maintain your desired shape.
Frost and strong wind sensitive. Salt tolerant. Drought tolerant once established. Well drained soils. Full sun to light shade
