If you'd like to give your garden a tropical feel and think bougainvillea plants are too large, then consider the Sunvillea series. Better Homes and Gardens said some of the best gardens use layering in which layers of plants that grow at different heights are combined. The semi-dwarf Sunvillea bougainvillea (Rose, Pink and Cream) fit well in this type of garden. Even if you don't live in a warm-climate area, Better Homes and Gardens suggests you can still take advantage of tropicals such as bougainvillea. Treat them as annuals or grow them in containers and bring them indoors for the winter.
