Golden Jackpot® Bougainvillea

Bougainvillea 'MonSam'

SKU
01648
Vibrant purple flowers create a dramatic contrast with the variegated green foliage with chartreuse to bright golden borders. Tolerates light shade, providing festive color and a tropical effect to patio containers, cascading over hanging baskets, or as a spreading groundcover. Evergreen in frost-free climates; a superb colorful annual in cooler northern zones.
