Q.Bougainvillea growth

Zone 91325 | Kim Edmonds added on May 4, 2017 | Answered

I received 2 different 3″ tall bouganvilla “starter plants” last summer. One has grown into a 5ft vine with blossoms. The other hasn’t grown much at all & seems to be a different variety & one I’ve never seen before.
The 5ft vine has nothing showing any branches or any other hint it will do anything other than continue growing as a “vine with blossoms/bracts & leaves.

Why isn’t it looking more like a multi-branch boogie? Or, is this vine the extent of my plant?
They’re both growing in containers.
And as I said, the other one is different…has chartreuse leaves, formed as a cluster atop a stem – the plant has not grown taller than it’s 3” as it arrived to me with the other one last August/September.
I haven’t any way to contact the person who gave them to me so it appears your site is more than likely my only hope.
Thank you for any insight you can offer.

Love your site & how wonderful it is that you offer information as well as answer questions when we’re in need of assistance.

Have a glorious day! Again, Thank you.
