BOUVARDIA

P. These are dwarf evergreen flowering shrubs for a warm greenhouse. They may be treated in the same way as the warm greenhouse fuchsia. They have advantage of flowering very freely in winter. The clusters of pink, red or white tubular flowers diffuse a pleasing fragrance and are borne on upright stems. Bouvardias require a winter temperature of not less than 50 degrees F. After flowering cut back the young shoots fairly hard to provide cuttings for propagation. Cuttings should be rooted in a propagating box filled with sandy compost and with bottom heat.
