Bougainvillea Plants


treefrogme3 added on December 25, 2017 | Answered

I have a bougainvillea that is suppose to be a trellis type. My problem is that I want it to only be three feet tall. How do I keep it at this height and have continuous blooms? I have read articles that say continuous cutting causes more leaves and thorns rather then blooms.
