A Bit More

Bougainvillea ‘Rosenka’ is a lovely and compact little bush, only  getting 1 to 2 feet tall, and 3 to 4 feet wide.  The occasional shoot may pop out, but they are easily trimmed off.  The bracts emerge golden, and age to pink.  When shaping mature branches of Bougainvillea, beware the thorns.  When pruning, puncture proof gloves are best.  In areas that get intense frost in the winter, use this variety as annual color in planters and hanging baskets.  Be sure to plant in full sun for the best show of color.  Bougainvillea benefits from regular water while getting established, but after the first year it only needs occasional watering.  Plant ‘Rosenka’ where an easy mounding shape and delightfully shifting color are desired.
