Does it exist? The elusive thornless (aka: dwarf) bougainvillea DOES exist!

Helen Johnson is the only true dwarf bougainvillea that we have found to have the best growth pattern and most reliable flowering habit. This cultivar is ideal for use as groundcover, and is absolutely stunning as a mass planting. New growth opens coppery orange, maturing into a uniform pink color. Bracts are small and twisted in arrangement. Leaves are small, opening greenish-tan, maturing to a dark-green.
