Torch Glow Bougainvillea
Bougainvillea Torch Glow
A fairly new introduction to the long list of Bougainvillea varieties, ‘Torch Glow’ offers the same infamous drought and heat tolerance as other varieties without the need of a trellis for support. Multiple stems grow upright from the base of the plant, and leaves cling closely to the branches, giving this shrub an interesting, twisting appearance. With deep pink color at the ends of the branches and such a unique silhouette, ‘Torch Glow’ makes a fine accent or specimen shrub, but can also be staked and pruned into a small tree. Hummingbirds will buzz around Bougainvillea in spring to pollinate the tiny white flowers that are nestled inside the bright pink bracts.
