Three shades of hot color distinguish this vigorous bougainvillea, with orange, coral and pink blossoms combined on the same tropical vine - she's adequately known as "Sundown Orange".

Her unique bracts open as deep orange, then turn to coral, and finally mature into a salmon-pink.  Her tri-coloring works so well with the color schemes of Floridian homes and architecture; she’s quickly becoming the favorite among weekend gardeners and landscape designers.

Her low water usage is key to water-conscious landscapes.
