Description

This is a cultivar, a cross between B. americana and B. grandiflora. It grows in tropical and subtropical climates and is sensitive to the cold so make sure to protect it from freezing temperatures. Grows in full sun to part sun with average watering. During the warm months watering is just about every day or so, reduce watering in the Winter. Some protect the plant from freezing in the ground by draping a cloth overtop and mulching well, however you may want to grow this plant in a pot if you’re in too cold of a climate. The soil should be nutrient rich and well draining.
