Bougainvillea 'Temple Fire'-Red Bush Bougainvillea
Nyctaginaceae Family

A great smaller bougainvillea with bronze brick red bracts covering a plant usually only 4' high by 6' wide.  During the winter months, many of its leaves will disappear but will regrow rapidly come spring. 

It is good in containers and in smaller areas still it should be in full sun for the best blooming.  Cut back after frost is over in early spring.
