Torch Glow Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea 'Torch Glow')


Torch Glow Bougainvillea

Bougainvillea 'Torch Glow'

No doubt about it, the Torch Glow Bougainvillea, a compact, rounded shrub, can add instant curb appeal thanks to their bursts of almost year round colors! The Bougainvillea 'Torch Glow' produces multiple compact stems that grow upright and out from the base and features beautiful green foliage as well as showy pink flowers atop the upright branches. In fact, it gets its name because the top of the stems looks like a torch, a very colorful one at that! It can help create a landscape scene that you have to see to believe. We love to plant them as a freestanding shrub in any landscape where their unique look adds interest to all kinds of landscapes, from tropical to desert!

The Torch Glow Bougainvillea is very different from the enormous vines of many bougainvillea’s commonly found in resorts and residential properties throughout Southern California. This is a true shrub with a fast growth rate and it’s one that loves to grow with full sun exposure. It is drought tolerant once established with low to moderate watering needs, in fact, too much water may slow down and reduce the colorful flowers. People love this easy care plant and it can tolerate urban pollution, so it’s a great choice for adding color to an urban landscape.

A Torch Glow Bougainvillea provides a wide range of landscape uses, from firewise/firescaping, to erosion control, as a privacy hedge, in rock gardens and much more! From the desert to the sea, this is one plant that is a winner in the landscape!
