SUNVILLEA® Sunvillea®

Bougainvillea bougainvillea

Most Compact Bougainvillea

Suntory has revolutionized another genus, bougainvillea, reining it in and making it more manageable as a blooming potted plant. Sunvillea® is opening up new possibilities for bougainvillea. Sunvillea® comes in Rose (bright fuchsia color), Pink (soft pink), and Cream (really soft yellow). Plants are ultra-compact and can even be sold as miniatures since plants flower at a very young stage.
