I find myself smelling bougainvillea again, but this time enjoying a scent similar to honeysuckles. I got my wish after all! Unbeknownst to many, Bougainvillea ‘Arborea’ is the only known variety that is fragrant. I think it’s a wonderful variety for its lack of thorns, bushy habit, mass flowering, and the best part – fragrant blooms! Bracts are small – each one about the size of a penny and the color is a pinkish-lavender very similar to the color of Silhouette. Look for it in BGI’s production lineup for 2010!
