Sunvillea® is a very compact series of bougainvillea.
Sunvillea® bougainvilleas debuted in the United States at the Tropical Plant Industry Exposition in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and were a big hit, winning ‘The Best New Flowering Plant’ Award based on attendee votes in 2011. Sunvillea® were also one of three finalists in the running for Greenhouse Grower’s Reader’s Choice Award after receiving the most votes in the “Best of the Rest” category.
Plants will grow to a maximum height of two to three feet. Sunvillea® comes in Rose (bright fuchsia color), Pink (soft pink), and Cream (really soft yellow).
